Have Your Say On Improvements To King Georges Road And Connells Point Road Intersection

Tuesday, 06 October 2020
Road users and local residents of South Hurstville, Connells Point, Kyle Bay and Blakehurst are invited to provide feedback on proposed improvements to the King Georges Road and Connells Point Road intersection.
 
Member for Oatley, Mark Coure, said the proposed improvements are designed to support current and future traffic demands at the intersection.
 
“With traffic congestion increasing at the intersection of King Georges Road and Connells Point Road, so are safety concerns, delays and frustration from the community,” Mr Coure said.
 
“Transport for NSW is now asking the community to provide feedback on a number of proposed intersection improvements designed to ease congestion, improve traffic flow, and boost safety for pedestrians and the 45,000 vehicles that use this section of the corridor every day.”
 
“These include widening both sides of King Georges Road from Salisbury Street to Connells Point Road, and extending the southbound right turn bays on Connells Point Road and King Georges Road to improve safety for turning vehicles.”
 
“The proposal also includes extending the right turn bay from Connells Point Road onto King Georges Road and realigning the left slip lane to improve traffic flow.”
 
“A new roundabout proposed at the intersection of Connells Point Road and The Mall will extend the turning lanes and maintain access to the shopping complex.”
 
Transport for NSW invites the community to provide feedback on the proposed upgrades by midnight Tuesday 27 October. All feedback will be considered and the community will be updated as the proposal progresses.
 
Feedback can be provided online at nswroads.work/KGR by email at kgr@transport.nsw.gov.au or phone on 1800 943 033.
