Road work at the intersection of Hoxton Park Road and Hill Road at Lurnea is set to progress until December 22.
The project is part of the NSW Government’s $300m Urban Roads Pinch Point Program to reduce congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s busiest roads.
State Member for Holsworthy, Melanie Gibbons said the project began after Easter this year to widen part of Hoxton Road to build a left turn lane to reduce traffic for westbound motorists.
“This new lane will improve safety for road users by reducing the number of rear-end crashes from motorists changing lanes,” Ms Gibbons said.
“Work has been carried out to relocate utilities and temporarily relocate the bus stop on Hoxton Park Road just east of Hill Road to start building the new dedicated left turn lane.”
The next stage of work has begun and will include removing the footpath to make room for the left turn lane, relocating traffic lights and providing a left turn signal for motorists turning into Hill Road.
“Crews will also be installing ‘No Stopping’ zones on both sides of Hill Road between Hoxton Park Road and Taloma Avenue as well as removing and replacing asphalt and line marking to complete the project.
“All measures will be taken to minimise impact to residents.”
- Work will continue to be carried out from 7am to 6pm on weekdays and 8am to 1pm on Saturdays as well as from 8pm to 5am on weekdays, weather permitting.
- Residents and motorists are advised it may be noisy at times.
