The community is being invited to have their say on plans for local intersection upgrades to create faster and safer travel for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians at Haberfield, Ashfield and Leichhardt in Sydney’s Inner West.
The proposal is designed to help ease congestion and improve pedestrian and cycling facilities at key locations on the City West Link, Parramatta Road and Dobroyd Parade.
The work in the Inner West will create better travel for motorists and quicker, safer journeys for pedestrians and cyclists.
This work will also mean improved travel times for buses and reduced queuing at local intersections for all road users.
Transport for NSW is proposing to make improvements to the following intersections:
City West Link, Norton Street and James St
Dobroyd Parade and Waratah Street
City West Link, Mortley Avenue and Timbrell Drive
Parramatta Road and Dalhousie Street.
Work at the intersections includes:
Combining James Street and Norton Street into a single, more efficient intersection
Converting James Street to a one travel (northbound) between City West Link and Lilyfield Road
Building a new pedestrian bridge connecting Timbrell Park, Reg Coady Reserve and the Haberfield community
Upgrading the Timbrell Park pedestrian and cycle shared pathway next to the proposed road widening
Removing the traffic lights at the Parramatta Road and Dalhousie Street intersection to convert it to left in and left out movements only
Building a new pedestrian bridge between Haberfield and Ashfield Park
Work would improve safety and amenity for all residents, pedestrians, cyclists and motorists in the area, including at local schools.
Community members are invited to review the proposed changes by Sunday May 24 2020 by visiting the project’s interactive portal at nswroads.work/NIportal.
Work is expected to start late 2021.The community will be kept updated as the project progresses.
