New clearways in Sydney to reduce congestion

New and extended clearways are being installed between the Hume Highway at Villawood and Parramatta Road in Parramatta.

The new clearways are expected to be operational from Monday 28th October as part of the New South Wales Government’s program to reduce congestion and delays on Sydney’s roads.

The new, extended clearways will operate in both directions from 6am to 7pm on weekdays and 9am to 6pm on weekends or public holidays.

A clearway is a section of road where stopping or parking is prohibited. Buses and taxis are allowed to stop when dropping off or picking up passengers.

Preliminary investigations by the state government across show clearways can help manage congestion by allowing motorists to use all traffic lanes.

By introducing clearways, road capacity can be increased for motorists without widening roads.

A government spokesperson said Woodville Road is a key route connecting the Hume Highway to the M4 Motorway and Parramatta Road, as well as the Parramatta CBD and surrounding suburbs.

The clearways are expected to help improve journey reliability for more than 23,000 daily Woodville Road users.

Work to install the new clearway signage will be carried out between Saturday 12 and Sunday 27 October, weather permitting.
