Work is underway to improve the intersection of King Georges and Connells Point Roads in South Hurstville in response to increased traffic levels.
Oatley MP Mark Coure said increased traffic posed safety concerns on the busy thoroughfare.
“Transport for NSW is working to improve the safety and flow of motorists and pedestrians at this intersection,” he said.
“This work will focus on Connells Point Road improvements on either side of the King Georges Road intersection, but will provide better results for both roads.”
The westbound right-turn bay on Connells Point Road, east of King Georges Road, will be extended by approximately 50 meters during peak periods.
New parking conditions will also be put in place nearby with a no stopping zone on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Improvements to Connells Point Road, west of King Georges Road, will include improving the existing pedestrian island and extending the eastbound right turn bay by approximately 30 metres.
Two bus stops on either side of Connells Point Road, west of King Georges Road, will be relocated and consolidated into a new bus stop, which will be located west of the mall.
The new bus stops will require the relocation of three parking spaces on each side of the street.
The works will be carried out between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays and also between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. from Sunday to Thursday.
The work will begin on Monday January 17 and will end in mid-2022.
