New clearways will be introduced on a section of Cabramatta Road West later this month to manage traffic flow for motorists who travel along the key corridor between Bonnyrigg and Cabramatta West.

A Transport for NSW spokesperson said the new clearways were being installed as part of the NSW Government's program to reduce congestion and delays on Sydney's roads.

"Cabramatta Road West is a key corridor through the South-West which provides direct access to Mount Pritchard, Bonnyrigg, Cabramatta West and St Johns Park," the spokesperson said.

"New clearway hours are being introduced between Elizabeth Drive and the Cumberland Highway to manage traffic flow for the thousands of motorists who travel along the busy corridor.

"This important corridor provides access to key local roads, including Humphries Road and Meadows Road, as well as schools, a number of bus services, businesses and recreational services.

"Introducing new weekday and weekend clearways will also improve journey reliability for all road-users."

The new clearways will operate in both directions from 6am to 7pm on weekdays and 9am to 6pm on weekends and public holidays.

"Existing parking restrictions and bus zones will continue to apply outside the new clearway hours.

"These new clearways will connect with existing clearways on the remainder of Cabramatta Road, Elizabeth Drive and the Hume Highway to provide a more efficient journey for motorists.

"By introducing clearways, road capacity can be increased for motorists without widening the roads."

Work to install new clearway signs will be carried out between Saturday, September 21 and Sunday, September 29, weather permitting.

Motorists are advised that any vehicles parked in the clearway on or after Monday, September 30 risk being fined and towed away.
