Project information

The intersection of Georges River Road and Milton Street, Ashfield currently has significant congestion issues, particularly during weekdays. The aim of the works is to decrease queuing and ease congestion by allowing more vehicles to travel through the intersection during each traffic light phase.

Installing a pedestrian crossing on the south side of the intersection and restricting right turn movements from Milton Street into and out of nearby Blackwood Avenue will help improve safety for motorists and pedestrians.

  • Providing an additional dedicated right turn lane on Milton Street for motorists turning into Georges River Road
  • Widening the eastern side of Milton Street to provide a dedicated through lane for southbound motorists on Milton Street
  • Installing a pedestrian crossing on the southern side of the intersection
  • Re-aligning the south-west corner of the intersection from Milton Street to Georges River Road to provide safer access for service vehicles
  • Restricting right turn movements into and out of Blackwood Avenue
  • Extending existing parking restrictions to 13 car spaces on Milton Street and seven spaces on Georges River Road
  • Re-aligning the shared footpath along the eastern side of Milton Street
  • Re-locating the existing sandstone kerb to the new alignment on the eastern side of Milton Street
  • Removal of some mature trees on Milton Street to accommodate the widening
  • Modifying the existing street lighting, utilities, line marking, traffic lights and sign posting to suit the new intersection design.
