Transport for NSW (TfNSW) is making improvements to the intersection of King Georges Road and Connells Point Road, South Hurstville, in order to improve traffic flow, travel times and safety for all road users, particularly during peak periods.
Transport for NSW said that the investigations will allow them to gather information about ground conditions, which will assist in developing designs for future road improvements.
Member for Oatley, Mark Coure said, that these works would provide real benefits to commuters who use both King Georges Road and Connells Point Road to travel for work, school and other purposes.
“Whilst these works will cause a minor disruption to commuters, the long-term benefits of this project ensure that NSW roads remain up to a consistently high standard,” Mr Coure said.
“The upgrades will ensure that commuters are guaranteed a safer and more comfortable journey whilst travelling along King Georg’s Road and Connells Point Road,” Mr Coure said.
The works will be carried out from March to May, weather permitting. Investigations will be conducted after hours to ensure King Georges Road remains open to traffic during the day, specifically during peak periods.
Works include topographic surveying, potholing, core-hole drilling, excavation works and pavement testing. Night shift hours will take place from 8pm and 5am from Sunday to Thursday. Whilst these works will include some noisy activities, a range of noise mitigation measures will be in place to limit the impacts on the community.
There will be temporary traffic changes while workers are on site including a reduced speed limit of 40km/h for the work zone. Lane closures and footpath closures may be in place, however traffic flow along King Georges Road will be maintained.
