Project Description

To improve efficiency and safety in this area for all road users. Existing deficiencies on the road network include high levels of congestion associated with closely spaced intersections and accesses. High traffic volumes make it difficult for buses to pull out onto Patrick's Rd after dropping off passengers.Right turn traffic from Dawson Parade into Patrick's Rd can get blocked by small numbers of vehicles turning right into Nepean Avenue. Right turning vehicles from Patrick's Rd into Bringelly Street often block vehicles in the through lane. The safety of pedestrians is also compromised due to congestion, queuing and u-turning.

The expected outcome of the project is to maximise available road space, reduce the number of turning movements to/from property accesses and provide enhanced facilities for pedestrians, cyclists and buses. The proposals intend to improve traffic flow through the area and improve safety for all users. Improvements to the Bringelly Drive and Patricks Road intersection through the provision of a protected right turn lane and the relocation of the existing bus stop on the southern side of Patrick's Rd is included. The objective of the project is improve efficiency and safety in this area for all road users.

Total cost of proposed project is $1,100,000
