About the Mascot intersection upgrades

Roads and Maritime Services notified the community in October about plans to upgrade five intersections in Mascot to help reduce congestion and improve safety.

The plans include lane realignments, changed median strips and footpaths, new pedestrian crossings and changes to traffic lights and signs.

The improvements will also help better manage heavy vehicle movements in the area.

We received feedback from 90 people, with eight people in favour of the proposal, six people opposed to the proposal, and 76 people not stating a preference about the proposal or making comments outside the scope of the proposal. Based on the feedback received and the objectives of the Mascot intersection upgrades, we have decided to proceed with the proposal, with the following changes:

The project would be delivered in stages and include lane realignments, changed median strips and footpaths, new pedestrian crossings and changes to traffic lights and signs.

  • Two additional parking spaces are being removed on Botany Road (south) near the intersection of Gardeners Road to improve safety for turning traffic.
  • The right turn ban from Gardeners Road (east) into O’Riordan Street (north) will not be implemented until the dual right turn lanes at the intersection of Gardeners Road and Bourke Road are operational.

We are now finalising the designs for each of the upgrades. Construction is due to start in mid-2019 following planning approval and the appointment of a construction contractor. Construction will be delivered in stages for each intersection. We will keep the community updated as the project progresses.

Gardeners Road and O’Riordan Street

Due to permanent changes to some routes, road users would need to find different ways to reach their destinations.
As part of the project design, Roads and Maritime has assessed alternative routes to identify different options.
