Cumberland Highway gets new clearway signs


The Government of New South Wales (NSW) in Australia has decided to install new clearways as part of their efforts to improve the traffic flow along the key corridor in western Sydney between Constitution Hill and Liverpool.

The installation of north and southbound clearways would enable authorities to tow parked cars blocking traffic, and improve traffic congestion.

Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said:  “The Cumberland Highway is a major freight and transport corridor and forms part of the A28 route through greater western Sydney.

"These new clearways, each about 16km long, mean the NSW Government has now delivered more than 152km of new and extended clearways since the end of 2013."

The spokesperson further added the clearway signs have been installed as part of the A$121m ($90.4m) Clearways Programme, which aims to reduce delays and congestion by maximising use of existing road space.

Nearly, 3,400 vehicles use this road every hour during peak times, signage such as 'No Stopping’ and ‘No Parking’ are already in place along most of the corridor.

Clearway signs installation works will be carried out to install clearway signage until 11 December, depending upon the weather conditions.

The authorities have further said that the clearway will come into effect from 12 December between 6am and 7pm on weekdays and between 8am and 8pm on weekends.
