New solar powered vehicle activated signs (VAS) were installed in November 2022, to alert Oxley Highway motorists that a vehicle is moving within the King Creek Road intersection and warn vehicles to slow down.

There is a new radar posts at the King Creek Road intersection to activate the VAS when vehicle stops at the intersection.

Transport for NSW also repainted the line markings at the King Creek Road intersection to improve safety.

Project information

The NSW Government is investing in improvements at the Oxley Highway and King Creek Road intersection to improve the safety and efficiency of the intersection. Between 2015 and 2020 there were eight crashes at the intersection of the Oxley Highway and King Creek Road. These crashes included three serious injury crashes, eight moderate injury crashes and one non casualty crash.

Transport for NSW has been developing short, medium and long-term strategies to improve safety at this intersection in response to safety and efficiency issues raised by the community. Community members have advocated for both short term and long-term strategies to address both safety and traffic growth in the area.

The Oxley Highway road corridor is significantly constrained at the King Creek intersection due to water, power and optic fibre services to the north; properties and nearby houses to the south; and bridges and culverts to the east/west. This means that potential options such as a roundabout or traffic signals require a longer development time and detailed investigations in the planning phase to ensure they are able to operate safety and efficiently.

Transport is carrying out further investigations into potential options , including a one lane roundabout with an eastbound slip lane. Transport will continue to seek funding and investigate a potential roundabout. Noting, this will require a longer development time and there may be challenges associated with potential property impacts and increased costs.
