The NSW Government funded this upgrade as part of its $225 million Pinch Point Program, which aims to reduce traffic delays, ease congestion and maintain travel times on Sydney major roads, particularly during weekday peak periods.
Roads and Maritime Services upgraded the ‘pinch point’ by:
- widening the western side of Mamre Road by about five metres to provide dedicated right turn lanes from Mamre Road into Saddington Street
- removing nine trees next to the Our Lady of the Rosary Primary School
- building a centre median on Mamre Road to protect the right turning traffic
- installing a CCTV Camera to help monitor and manage traffic.
- Since opening to traffic, this upgrade is delivering more reliable trips for all road users. With smoother transfers between the Great Western Highway and the M4 Motorway, local residents have more options to travel to and connect with their loved ones, family and work across Sydney.
The key benefits to the community include:
- improving traffic flow on Mamre Road
- reducing congestion and improve travel times
- reduced travel times for Great Western Highway and M4 Motorway transfers
- improving safety for pedestrians crossing Mamre Road.
Roads and Maritime invited feedback in May 2017 on an updated night work schedule. No concerns were raised and we have decided to proceed with the proposal unchanged. See June 2017 project update to learn more about this consultation.
We thank everyone who took part in the consultation process.
