Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime Services is upgrading the intersection of Hoxton Park Road and the Hume Highway in Liverpool as part of our Pinch Point Program to reduce congestion, and improve traffic flow and safety.

Work is continuing which includes adjusting traffic signals, upgrading stormwater drainage, demolishing existing footpaths and asphalting. For more information view our April 2019 project update (PDF, 224Kb).

Our work schedule

We will be on site for up to five days and five nights a week between April and September 2019, excluding public holidays.

For this upcoming work we will be on site for up to 60 night and 60 day shifts between Wednesday April 17 and Wednesday 17 July 2019, weather permitting.

Our day work hours will be between 7am and 6pm from Monday to Friday and between 8am to 1pm on Saturday. Our night ours will be between 8pm and 6am from Sunday to Friday.

How will the work affect you?

Our work may be noisy at times but we will do everything we can to minimise its impact, including completing the noisier activities by 11pm.

Project background

The NSW Government is funding this project as part of its $300 million Urban Roads Pinch Point Program, which aims to reduce congestion and improve travel time on Sydney’s busiest corridors.

Motorists traveling through Liverpool often experience congestion and long wait times squeezing through the busy, central intersection at the Hume Highway and Hoxton Park Road. The single right turn lane has queues of motorists waiting to return home or to connect to the M7 which then block other road users continuing south along the Highway or transferring to the M5 Motorway.

Roads and Maritime is upgrading this ‘pinch point’ by widening the Hume Highway to creating a second dedicated right turn lane onto Hoxton Park Road. This will benefit road users by:

  • improving westbound traffic low onto Hoxton Park Road towards the M7 and Liverpool’s outer suburbs
  • improving southbound traffic flow continuing on Hume Highway towards the M5 and Sydney’s South West
  • easing congestion and lowering travel times for all road users, especially during peak AM and PM times.

Community benefits

The key benefits to the community include:

  • Improving traffic flow through Liverpool through the intersection by separating westbound motorists
  • Lowering travel times to connect to the M7 Motorway and M5 Motorway
  • Easing congestion for Liverpudlians needing to access Hoxton Park Road or continue along the Hume Highway.

Community consultation

In November and December 2017 Roads and Maritime Services invited feedback on proposed intersection improvements at Hoxton Park Road and Hume Highway, Liverpool.

After considering all responses, we have decided to proceed with the traffic improvements as proposed.

What happens next?

We will be updating you on this project as work progresses, including informing you in advance about future work schedules and night work.
