Extended clearways to ease congestion pain

MOTORISTS are enjoying smoother and more reliable journeys on Canterbury Road with new and extended clearways.

Transport for NSW Executive Director Sydney, John Hardwick, said the clearways began operating this week in both directions from Henry Lawson Drive at Milperra to New Canterbury Road at Hurlstone Park.

He said the clearways would help reduce daily travel times for around 47,000 vehicles on Canterbury Road.

The clearways will be operational from 6am to 7pm on weekdays and from 9am to 6pm on weekends and public holidays, making an additional lane available to traffic during these times.

To support local business, customers at the Canterbury Town Centre, road users can continue to park on Canterbury Road after 7pm on weekdays and 6pm on weekends and public holidays.

Mr Hardwick said Transport for NSW would continue to work with Canterbury Bankstown Council on alternative short-term parking options for business customers of the Canterbury shopping strip.
