Victoria Road between Pennant and Pemberton Streets, Parramatta

Safety improvements on Victoria Road between Pennant and Pemberton Streets, Parramatta

The Australian and NSW Governments are investing more than $400 million to improve safety and
reduce crashes on NSW roads.

Project information

Transport for NSW (TfNSW) is developing a design to improve pedestrian safety and ease traffic flow at and around the intersection of Victoria Road and Pennant Street, Parramatta.

The proposed improvements are being developed in response to community feedback about the lack of pedestrian crossing facilities at Victoria Road and road safety statistics on pedestrian crashes in the area near the Pemberton Street intersection.

The key safety improvements will include the introduction of two new signalised crossings on Victoria Road and Pennant Street to assist pedestrian access to Collett Park, Collett Village shops and the bus stops on Victoria Road.

A new right turn bay on Victoria Road would allow westbound motorists to turn right into Pennant Street. The proposed design also includes an increase to the length of the centre median strip on Victoria Road. To improve pedestrian safety and reduce the high incidence of jay-walking in this area, the extended median will have a pedestrian barrier which will restrict motorists accessing the right turn into and out of Pemberton Street, limiting the street to left-in and left-out movements only.

Further information on the suggested alternative routes (PDF, 1.42Mb) is available for review.

Full details of the proposed scope can be reviewed as part of our recent notification (PDF, 2.07Mb).

Further information about the funding of this project can be found at the Road Safety Stimulus Program webpage.

Transport for NSW (TfNSW) wrote to residents and stakeholders to seek feedback on the proposed design in November 2022.

Our consultation was open was carried out from Monday, 8 November to Sunday 28 November 2021.

We are in the process of reviewing submissions. All comments will be considered and responded to individually and a summary of feedback will be published on this website in a community consultation report.
