Reducing congestion on King Georges Road at Beverly Hills
17 June 2019
Motorists travelling on King Georges Road at Beverly Hills could enjoy faster and more reliable journeys with a proposal for new and extended clearways between the M5 Motorway and Stoney Creek Road.
Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said the proposed new weekend and extended weekday clearways are part of the NSW Government’s program to reduce congestion and delays on Sydney’s roads.
“The new and extended clearways are proposed to operate in both directions on King Georges Road, from 6am to 7pm on weekdays and from 9am to 6pm on weekends and public holidays,” the spokesperson said.
“A single parked car can cause major delays on road corridors during busy times, so it’s important to ensure all lanes are available to improve journey reliability for motorists."
“The project will also link two nearby clearways installed along the A3 corridor last year - between the Hume Highway at Greenacre and the M5 Motorway, and between Stoney Creek Road at Beverly Hills and the Princes Highway at Blakehurst.”
The NSW Government has actively investigated alternative business customer parking options in the local area in addition to the existing parking at Beverly Hills town centre, and proposes to offer funding to Georges River Council for alternative business customer parking, to minimise the impact on customers accessing the Beverly Hills shops.
These proposals also make changes to the council carparks on Frederick Avenue and Beresford Avenue, along with changing the on-street parking on Hampden Street to 90-degree parking, which adds 18 new parking spaces and footpath improvements.
After 7pm on weekdays and 6pm on weekends and public holidays, parking would still be allowed on King Georges Road for customers attending restaurants in Beverly Hills.
The community is invited to have their say on the proposed alternative business customer parking options. Feedback can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or on 1300 706 232 by Monday 8 July 2019.
The community and motorists will be kept informed as the project progresses. For more information about the Sydney Clearways Strategy visit Sydney Clearways Program.
