Protecting Local Streets from WestConnex


Background

Council has funded a study to identify streets which may experience increased traffic from WestConnex. The study is part of Council's ongoing effort to protect residents from the impacts of the project. Find out more about what Council is doing on WestConnex

About the study

The study determined the potential changes to traffic on local streets by considering the following scenarios:

  • Without WestConnex - the likely traffic on the current road network in 2021;
  • Opening of Stage 1 (M4 East) and Stage 2 (New M5) of WestConnex - the likely traffic impacts on local streets in 2021; and
  • If

Council to argue that Roads & Maritime Services (RMS) funding is justified as the need for these works is a direct result of WestConnex. Council recognises that while Stage 3 may reduce traffic on some local streets, others will worsen as a result of Stages 1, 2 and/or 3. Council remains opposed to all stages of WestConnex, preferring public transport solutions to Sydney’s traffic congestion problems;
    3. Refine the costings prior to submitting it to the State Government with the aim of achieving high service level standards; and
    4. Place notice and plans for Buruwan Park and King George's Park at the relevant locations.
