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.

Road users travelling between Sydney’s North West and Parramatta are experiencing congestion and long wait times on Old Windsor Road between Seven Hills Road and Norbrik Drive. To ease congestion, improve traffic flow and reduce travel times, we will:

  • Widen Old Windsor Road from two to three continuous lanes in each direction to ease congestion for motorists
  • Extend the right turn lanes from Old Windsor Road onto Seven Hills Road to improve southbound traffic flow.

  • forming road pavement

We will be working up to five days and five nights a week for 53 night shifts and 70 day shifts between Monday 1 July and Monday 30 September 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 work hours will be between 8pm and 5am from Sunday to Friday.
