Transport for New South Wales (NSW) has announced plans to introduce extended clearways on Blaxland Road, a key corridor between Ryde and Epping, to reduce congestion on Sydney roads.

Each day, over 25,000 vehicles travel along this busy corridor.

A Transport for NSW spokesperson said: “Blaxland Road is a key corridor through Sydney’s northwest, which provides direct access to Ryde, Denistone, Denistone East, Eastwood and Epping, as well as surrounding suburbs.

“Extended clearway hours are being introduced between Devlin Street and Epping Road to manage traffic flow.”

This corridor is considered to be important as it provides access to Epping Station, Lane Cove and Balaclava roads, as well as to several businesses, health and education services.

“Introducing extended weekday clearway hours will also improve journey reliability for all road users,” the spokesperson added.

This project is part of its $121m Clearways Program to install clearways on Sydney’s road network.

Since 2013, Transport for NSW has installed more than 705km of new and extended clearways across Sydney’s busiest road corridors.

Work on the installation of new clearways will be executed between 27 March and 5 April as per weather conditions.

The spokesperson also added: “By introducing clearways, road capacity can be increased without widening roads. This means motorists and bus commuters will be able to spend more time doing the things they enjoy.”
