Drivers reminded to prepare for new Rozelle access road between Victoria Road and City-West Link

Published

Sydney motorists are reminded that a new access road connecting the City-West Link to Victoria Road will open in the early hours of Sunday 25 October 2020, weather permitting. Transport for NSW Chief Operations Officer Howard Collins has advised motorists who usually drive through this area to plan ahead, and make themselves aware of the new road configurations beforehand.

“From Sunday 25 October 2020, the new ‘Victoria Road Access Road’ will open and change the way drivers access Victoria Road from the City-West Link, The Crescent and James Craig Road,” said Mr. Collins.

“When the access road is open, anyone travelling east on the City-West Link will need to keep to the furthest two left lanes to access Victoria Road. Anyone travelling from The Crescent or exiting James Craig Road will also need to keep to the left in order to access Victoria Road.

“Currently drivers will be used to keeping right, so we have rolled out a comprehensive driver awareness campaign and installed extra electronic signs to get the word out about these important changes.”

The driver awareness campaign is on social media, digital channels, press and radio.

This new access road will allow work to be safely carried out on the current Victoria Road bridge, while keeping traffic moving on Victoria Road and the City-West Link. These changes will be in place for around two years as part of construction of the Rozelle Interchange.

The Rozelle Interchange is a new underground motorway interchange to the Anzac Bridge, City West-Link and Victoria Road. It will provide a bypass of Victoria Road between the Iron Cove Bridge and the Anzac Bridge, with links to the planned Western Harbour Tunnel.

“We thank motorists for their patience as we carry out this important work,” Mr. Collins said.
