Improved journey times on the Pacific Highway at Gordon
16 October 2019
Motorists will experience a smoother and quicker journey along the Pacific Highway with the introduction of new no stopping signs between Merriwa Street and Ryde Road at Gordon.
A transport for NSW spokesperson said the Pacific Highway is a key transport corridor through Sydney, carrying more than 50,000 vehicles a day through the area.
“A single parked car can significantly reduce road capacity and cause major delays on busy road corridors so it is important to ensure all lanes are available to improve journey reliability for motorists.” the spokesperson said.
“Following a review of traffic movements, Transport for NSW is planning to install no stopping signs and remove 23 parking spaces to improve traffic flow through this section of the Pacific Highway.
“The removal of the parking spaces will help to will reduce congestion and improve traffic flow for both the drivers and bus customers.”
Work to install signage and remove the car parking will take place on Monday 11 November and Friday 15 November between 8pm and 5am, weather permitting.Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions, and to follow the directions of signs and traffic control during work hours.
Transport for NSW thanks motorists for their patience during this time.
