Roads and Maritime Services asked the community to have a say on proposed improvements to this section of road. The proposed design included providing three lanes in each direction separated by a concrete median to reduce congestion and improve travel times on this busy road. It also included plans to restrict right turn access into and out of some local side streets to increase safety and improve traffic flow
We have considered all responses to the consultation on the proposed improvements and have decided to proceed with the widening of the road. However we will continue investigations based on community feedback, especially around the right turn movement restrictions, and will develop a work schedule in coming months.
We will update the community when these additional investigations are complete before starting work. We will also communicate a timeframe for construction, including anticipated start and finish dates.
We thank everyone for considering the proposal and for the time they spent to give us feedback.
The existing variable message sign (VMS) will be relocated to a position no more than 150 metres from its current location to accommodate the road widening.
Covering the open drain on King Georges Road Widening Stage 1 was investigated and considered as part of this project. A number of possible solutions were discussed with key stakeholders including Sydney Water and the City of Canterbury Bankstown. Due to the constraints of the existing drain structure, covering the drain completely or partially would impact the effective flood management of the drain. This would cause flooding on King Georges Road Widening Stage 1, including further down the road corridor and therefore was not able to be considered further as part of this project.
Roads and Maritime is currently working with the City of Canterbury Bankstown to develop a final design for stage three intersection improvements on King Georges Road Widening Stage 1, Stanley Street and Salvia Avenue. We are currently looking at options that will minimise the impact to Stevens Reserve whilst balancing the aims of the project. The community will be updated as this stage of the project progresses.
