Solution at last for worst intersection

PLANS for a $100 million upgrade of one of the State’s worst intersections – Homebush Bay Drive, Australia Avenue and Underwood Road at Homebush – have been announced.

It will include the widening of Australia Avenue and Underwood Road to allow more traffic to flow into this more efficient intersection; left slip lanes will be provided at all approaches and a U-turn lane installed on the Homebush Bay Drive northbound approach will allow traffic flow back onto the southbound ramp towards the M4 Motorway; footpaths will be widened to become shared use pathways and on-road bicycle lanes will be improved; and refuge islands and coordinated user-activated crossings will be provided at all approaches.
Construction could begin in 2025 and be complete in 18 months.
