Main Road intersection upgrade, Dora Creek


Project overview

The NSW Government is planning for the proposed upgrade of the Main Road and Dora Street intersection at Dora Creek.

Project information


Main Road at Dora Creek is a key arterial road servicing west Lake Macquarie that connects Morisset to the south with Toronto and Glendale in the north.

The proposed upgrade aims to improve traffic flow, safety and travel times for the 8,500 motorists who use this intersection each day and support further population growth in west Lake Macquarie region.

What are we proposing?

The proposal includes:

  • New alignment and upgrade of the Main Road and Dora Street intersection with traffic lights
  • Two lanes of travel in each direction along Main Road with separate left and right turn lanes into Dora Street and Douglass Street
  • Wamsley Street side road (old Main Road) to be converted into a cul-de-sac connecting to Douglass Street
  • A new raised pedestrian crossing on Wamsley Street, which requires the introduction of a 40km/h speed limit and ‘no stopping’ areas to maintain safe sight distance. The ‘no stopping’ areas will remove about seven parking spaces on the eastern side of the street in front of the shops and eight parking spaces on the western side of the street
  • Upgrade of the existing carpark at Wamsley Street, which will add an extra 11 parking spaces to the carpark
  • Indented bus bays in both directions on Main Road
  • Improved pedestrian connections between Wamsley Street shops and Dora Creek train station with new pathways and accessible kerb ramps
  • New concrete gutter, kerbing and a raised central median.

    Community information

    The community was invited to have their say on the proposed concept design in November and December 2022. 

    We are now reviewing the feedback received and will prepare a Community Consultation Report summarising and responding to the issues and comments raised. We expect to publish this report in early 2023.
