Project information

Each day, around 47,600 vehicles travel through the intersection at Silverwater Road and Holker Street at Silverwater, resulting in congestion during the weekday AM and PM peak periods.

Transport for NSW is proposing to improve traffic flow and safety at this intersection by widening sections of Silverwater Road and Holker Street and adding dedicated turning lanes on both roads.

The proposed design will help to ease congestion, improve travel times and safety for all road users.

Key benefits of the proposed upgrade include:

  • reduced congestion and queuing for motorists on Silverwater Road southbound by adding an additional left turn lane onto Holker Street
  • reduced congestion and queuing for motorists on Holker Street westbound by adding an additional right turn lane onto Silverwater Road
  • increased capacity on Holker Street by extending the existing left turn and through lane for motorists travelling westbound
  • improved through traffic flow on Silverwater Road for motorists travelling southbound
  • improved travel times
  • improved road safety.

Key features of the proposed upgrade include:

  • widening Silverwater Road on the southbound approach to provide an additional left turn lane into Holker Street
  • widening Holker Street on the westbound approach to provide an additional right turn lane into Silverwater Road northbound, and an extended through and left turn lane into Silverwater Road southbound
  • upgrading the existing traffic lights
  • repositioning one bus stop on Silverwater Road and two bus stops on Holker Street
  • adjusting utilities, street lighting, drainage, signage, and road marking and adjusting footpaths.

In response to the evolving COVID-19 situation, Transport for NSW is carrying out consultation in different ways to limit the spread of COVID-19 and ensure the community can have their say.

The community was invited to attend an online information session via Microsoft Teams on Thursday 12 May at 4:00pm.

During the session the project team explained the proposed upgrade and answered questions that the community had.

Please view the information session video.

Transport for NSW is carefully considering all feedback received. A consultation report which summarises community and stakeholder feedback, and Transport for NSW responses, will be published later this year on the project webpage.

We will continue to keep community members and stakeholders informed as planning progresses by community notifications and updates to the project webpage.

If you would like to receive project updates direct to your email, please email parramatta@transport.nsw.gov.au and we will add you to our mailing list.

We will continue to keep the community and stakeholders informed as the proposal progresses through community notifications and updates to the project webpage.
