Transport for NSW is planning to upgrade Hoxton Park Road to provide dedicated bus lanes between Banks Road at Miller and Cowpasture Road at West Hoxton.
NOV 2020Liverpool to Airport Connection Masterplan
The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment, Liverpool City Council and Transport are working together to develop a masterplan for connecting Liverpool CBD with the Aerotropolis and Western Sydney Airport over the coming decades.
The masterplan is expected to be finalised in 2021. Planning for the Hoxton Park Road upgrade has been paused while this wider investigation for the entire corridor is completed.
The NSW Government is planning to establish rapid bus services from the Liverpool metropolitan centre to Western Sydney International Airport before it opens in 2026, and to Western Parkland City.
As part of this plan, Transport for NSW is proposing to upgrade Hoxton Park Road between Banks Road, Miller and Cowpasture Road, West Hoxton. The upgrade would feature two new dedicated bus only lanes to provide frequent and reliable services, improve road safety and reduce congestion.
The recommended option would include building two new lanes for general traffic and converting the existing kerb lanes into bus only lanes, with existing shared paths to be maintained as part of the upgrade. This option would provide greater flexibility for bus services and will have less impact on the community during construction.
The proposed upgrade of Hoxton Park Road would have benefits including:
- dedicated bus lanes
- reduced congestion for all road users
- improved journey time and journey time reliability
- improved road safety
- improved facilities and environmental conditions for cyclists and pedestrians
- connecting communities by improving movement along the corridor
- facilitating economic development and employment with connection to the future Western Sydney International Airport
Planning for the Hoxton Park Road upgrade has been paused whilst the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment, Liverpool City Council and Transport prepare a Liverpool to Airport Connection Masterplan.
