New clearways for King Georges Road between Stoney Creek Road and Princes Highway

Thursday, 01 February 2018

Motorists will soon be able to enjoy a smoother journey along King Georges Road with improvements under way along the busy section of the road through Sydney’s south.

Member for Oatley, Mark Coure MP, said new clearways will soon be introduced to improve traffic for motorists who travel along the key corridor between Beverly Hills and Blakehurst.

The clearways are part of the NSW Government’s $121 million Clearways Program, which aims to reduce congestion and delays on Sydney’s roads.

“Introducing clearways on this key transport corridor through Sydney will reduce congestion for motorists and improve journey reliability,” Mr Coure said.

“This important corridor provides direct access to the M5 Motorway and the southern suburbs of Sydney as well as eateries, schools and other services including banks and leisure centres.

“Clearways on King Georges Road from Stoney Creek Road at Beverly Hills and Princes Highway at Blakehurst will help traffic flow by restricting parking and allowing vehicles to be towed from these areas if they stop illegally or breakdown.

“Implementing the clearways will ensure all lanes are available to traffic during clearway hours.”

Mr Coure said new and extended clearways will be introduced from Stoney Creek Road to Connells Point Road and operate in both directions from 6am to 7pm on weekdays and from 9am to 6pm on weekends and public holidays.

“New clearways will also be introduced between Connells Point Road and Princes Highway and operate on weekends and public holidays from 9am to 6pm.

“No changes will be made to existing weekday clearways which currently operate from 6am to 10am and from 3pm to 7pm along this section of King Georges Road.

“While these clearways will result in some parking being removed from King Georges Road, Roads and Maritime is working closely with Georges River Council to provide alternate business customer parking on nearby side streets.

“The community and motorists will be kept informed as the project progresses.”
