Transport for NSW completed work at the intersection in early - March 2021. The upgrade involved the construction of new lanes on Parramatta and Shaftesbury roads.

The new lanes have created more capacity for right-turning vehicles, taking them out of the busy eastbound through lanes. The work began in April 2020 and also involved the relocation of substantial underground utilities, including gas, water, electrical and telecommunications infrastructure.

Project information

The upgrade at the intersection of Parramatta Road and Shaftesbury Road, Concord will help reduce congestion and improvement eastbound travel times on Parramatta Road.

The additional right-turn only lane on Parramatta Road will keep more turning vehicles out of the busy through lanes, while the newly constructed departure lane on Shaftesbury Road will allow more vehicles to clear the intersection with each traffic light phase.

The work involved:

  • construction of an additional eastbound right turn lane from Parramatta Road into Shaftesbury Road to increase capacity and stop queuing into the through traffic lanes
  • widening the northern side of Parramatta Road and the western side of Shaftesbury Road to accommodate the additional right turn lane
  • realigning footpaths, upgrading traffic lights and drainage, relocating services, removing and replacing asphalt, line marking and landscaping.

During 2016, Transport for NSW (then Roads and Maritime Services) consulted with the community on the proposed intersection improvement. Comments from 14 people raised 83 matters, with the majority relating to the background of the proposal and congestion in the wider Burwood/Concord area.

In response to concerns raised during consultation, and to indicate proposed changes to the project's scope, Transport for NSW displayed the Review of Environmental Factors (PDF, 4.41Mb) to allow for further comment from the community. A submissions report (PDF, 2.18Mb) was published in April 2017 summarising comments and responses.
