OCT 2020Work to remove two trees on March Street

Work at the March and Bosworth intersection is progressing well. Further investigation has shown we will need to remove two further street trees from the project area. See the October notification (PDF, 465Kb) about tree removal for details.

If you have any questions about the planned tree removal please contact our delivery partner DM Roads by Wednesday 3 November.

March and Bosworth Street intersection upgrade

Transport for NSW consulted with the local community during the early part of 2020 on two updates to the project:

  • the removal of an additional 30 trees on March Street
  • a night work schedule including working up to five nights a week at certain times of the year

After reviewing and considering the feedback we received, we will proceed with the additional tree removal and the proposed night work schedule. See the May 2020 project notification (PDF, 119Kb) for more detail.

Vegetation removal

An Addendum Review of Environmental Factors (AREF) that assessed the impact of removing the additional trees has been approved. The AREF details mitigation measures to reduce the visual impact of removing these trees, including planting new trees and vegetation as part of the project’s landscape design. View the Addendum review of environmental factors (PDF, 10.3Mb).

A diagram showing the trees to be removed and a draft landscaping plan are in the earlier project update (PDF, 413Kb). We will continue to engage with Council to finalise the design and choose plants that best fit with the character of the local area.

Night work

Based on the feedback received, we will proceed with working up to five nights per week at certain times in 2020 and every week from November 2020 to April 2021. This will help us reduce our overall impact on the community by finishing the work and returning the area to normal as soon as possible.

We will continue to work closely with surrounding residents during construction on ways we can continue to reduce the noise and impact of our night work.

If you have any questions or comments about the project, you can contact our delivery partner DM Roads at any time.

Project information

The Australian and NSW Governments are aiming to reduce congestion on Kurrajong Road, March Street and Bells Line of Road approaches to Richmond Bridge. The Australian Government has provided $18 million in funding to improve traffic conditions at three intersections in three stages:

Stage 1 - Kurrajong Road and Old Kurrajong Road, Richmond -  Project complete

The upgrade included:

  • Widening to create a dedicated right turn lane from Kurrajong Road onto Old Kurrajong Road for motorists travelling south
  • creating a dedicated left turn lane from Old Kurrajong Road onto Kurrajong Road including an acceleration lane to improve traffic flow.

Stage 2 - Bells Line of Road and Grose Vale Road, North Richmond - Project complete

The upgrade included:

  • creating two westbound lanes on Bells Line of Road from Pitt Lane to ease congestion for motorists crossing the Hawkesbury River into North Richmond
  • providing a second right turn lane onto Bells Line of Road by widening Grose Vale Road to improve traffic flow towards Richmond
  • extending each Bells Line of Road right turn lane onto Terrace Road and Grose Vale Road to reduce travel times for road users travelling between Richmond and North Richmond upgrading pedestrian crossings to improve safety for pedestrians.

Stage 3 - March Street and Bosworth Street, Richmond

March and Bosworth Streets is stage 3 of these improvements with work expected to start in January 2020 including project adjustments.

The upgrade includes:

  • a new dedicated right turn bay for vehicles travelling east on March Street and turning right to travel south on Bosworth Street
  • no right turn from March Street onto Bosworth Street for vehicles travelling north
  • removal of parking spaces on March Street to the east and west of the intersection
  • extending the ‘No Stopping’ zones on both sides of March Street between Chapel Street and approximately 100m east of Bosworth Street during peak periods and weekends.

Previous community consultation for work at this intersection was completed between 2012 and 2016. More information about this consultation can be found in the project documents listed below.

  • Ease congestion
  • Improve traffic flow
  • Increase road user and pedestrian safety
  • Lower travel times

In August 2014, Roads and Maritime invited feedback from local businesses, residents and stakeholders on Stage 1, which involves upgrading the intersection at Kurrajong Road, March Street and Old Kurrajong Road, Richmond.

Following assessment of this feedback, Roads and Maritime proceeded with the project. A copy of the community consultation report for the proposal which summarises the comments, responses and details of the decision has been released. A community consultation report for the proposed night work schedule for Stage 2 at the intersection of Bells Line of Road and Grose Vale Road, North Richmond has also been prepared.

We will be updating you as we progress to the next stage of this project.
