Warren Road and Illawarra Road intersection

We are seeking your views on three traffic options developed from the Warren Road Precinct traffic study.



On-street parking loses
Option A
Westbound one way traffic restriction in Warren Road between Carrington Road to Illawarra Road
0 net loss
Option B
Parking restrictions in Warren Road between Illawarra Road and Excelsior Parade and angle parking in Grove Avenue
No net loss, however loss of 21 on-street parking spaces during day time, Monday to Friday on Warren Road. To offset this loss angle parking will be established in Grove Street. This will increase the number of parking spaces by 21.
Option C
Provide passing bays in Warren Road between Illawarra Road and Excelsior Parade
Loss of 6 on-street parking spaces in Warren Road.


Council has undertaken a traffic study in the south Marrickville precinct to investigate a one way westbound traffic flow proposal in Warren Road between Carrington and Illawarra Roads. The study also looked at other options to alleviate traffic congestion and improve road safety in Warren Road.

How was the study prepared?

The draft traffic study was developed using information from:

  • Traffic data collected from tube and intersection counts, including peak hour observations made between March and May 2019
  • Traffic accidents database from the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS)
  • A review of traffic volumes and speeds, including cars and trucks use in the area
