Traffic changes while we build WestConnex
From Tuesday, 4 July 2017
Changed traffic conditions will be in place on Gardeners Road between Kent Road and O’Riordan Street, Mascot until early 2020.
The traffic changes will include:
- On Gardeners Road, eastbound traffic will be reduced to one lane between Kent Road and O’Riordan Street. There are no changes to westbound traffic. One left hand turning lane from Gardeners Road onto Bourke Road eastbound will remain open
- The right hand turn from Gardeners Road westbound onto Bourke Road will be removed. Motorists can turn right at O’Riordan Street to access Bourke Road.
- The pedestrian footpath on the northern side of Gardeners Road between Bourke Road and O’Riordan Street will be closed. Pedestrians are encouraged to use the Church Avenue footpath as an alternative.
Access to all nearby businesses will be maintained during the works.
Please plan ahead and allow extra travel time.
For more information and maps see the full notification.
From Sunday, 4 June 2017
There are changes to the way you enter the M4 Motorway from Woodville Road.
The Woodville Road westbound on-ramp to the M4 no longer has a dedicated lane and motorists need to merge with the existing three motorway lanes.
Signage will be in place to help guide motorists. Please plan ahead and allow extra travel time.
There will be changed traffic conditions along Euston Road between Sydney Park Road and Maddox Street from April until mid 2018 including:
- No right turn at Euston Road northbound into Maddox Street at the traffic lights; a detour via Huntley Street and Bourke Road will be in place
- One northbound lane closed on Euston Road between Sydney Park Road and Maddox Street
- No parking on Euston Road northbound between Sydney Park Road and Maddox Street.
Please allow extra travel time if you drive through this area.
Electricity cable installation along Euston Road, Alexandria
The M4 Motorway westbound on-ramp from Concord Road was closed permanently on Friday, 17 March 2017. The closure is allowing us to build a new on-ramp at Powells Creek, which will open later in the year.
Motorists are still able to access the M4 Motorway westbound from:
- Homebush Bay Drive
- Silverwater Road
- Parramatta Road junction, Concord
Please allow extra travel time if you drive through this area.
Road closure: Orpington Street, Ashfield
From Sunday 30 April 2017
Orpington Street, Ashfield will be closed at the intersection of Parramatta Road from Sunday 30 April for approximately six months. This closure is necessary to help us construction the new alignment of Parramatta Road westbound.
Be prepared for the following changes during this period:
- Traffic detours
- Bus diversions
- Bus stop closures
Thank you for your patience. For your convenience, please plan ahead and allow extra travel time.
Motorists should use Loftus Street, Ormond Street/Pembroke Street or Hume Highway/Pembroke Street to access other parts of Orpington Street.
- Bus route 406 southbound (towards Hurlstone Park) will be diverted from Dalhousie Street, via Parramatta Road, Liverpool Road, Pembroke Street, and then onto Orpington Street as normal.
- Route 406 northbound services (towards Five Dock) will not be affected.
View map for details.
The looped ramp (G-loop) provides direct, traffic light-free access to the M4 Motorway for drivers heading west towards Parramatta.
Drivers will need to make sure they are in the far left-hand lane on Homebush Bay Drive in order to access the G-loop.
Please drive carefully if you travel through this area. Remain alert and follow the signs.
The right-hand turn from the kerbside lane on Parramatta Road westbound at the M4 Motorway intersection is not available. This leaves two dedicated right turning lanes. The kerbside lane is now a through lane only.
The merge lane on M4 Motorway westbound will also be shortened to 40 metres for traffic turning left from Parramatta Road. Motorists entering should use care.
These closures will remain in place until the opening of WestConnex M4 East in early 2019.
A realigned exit from the M4 Motorway eastbound onto Sydney Street, Concord was introduced in November 2016. Take extra care and follow the signs provided.
Allow extra travel time on Parramatta Road
If you use Parramatta Road, be prepared. We’re building twin tunnels for the M4 East between Homebush and Haberfield from different locations along Parramatta Road. Trucks supporting this work will use main roads to reduce traffic on local roads.
There are also a number of lane closures and changes in place to support construction activity including:
The closure of 450 metres of a westbound lane on Parramatta Road between Ashfield Park and Bland Street at Ashfield. This section will remain closed until the M4 East opens in 2019.
One of three eastbound lanes between Bland Street and Rogers Avenue, Haberfield is closed, as it forms a right-turn bay for trucks accessing our construction site on Parramatta Road.
A number of changes to local streets have taken place to support construction of the M4 East. Please allow extra travel time when driving on these local streets and be prepared.
