Jun 2021 - Community consultation report

Transport for NSW invited feedback in November and December 2020 on our amended proposal to improve the Pennant Hills Road and North Rocks Road intersection.

We received feedbacks from the community and have summarised all feedback and responses in a community consultation report which we encourage you to view or download (PDF, 2.18Mb).

After carefully considering the feedback received, we have decided to proceed with the proposed intersection improvements, with a few changes.

Transport would like to thank everyone who provided feedback.

Project information


Each day nearly 60,000 vehicles travel through the Pennant Hills Road and North Rocks Road intersection. Road users currently experience heavy congestion, slow travel times and delays when travelling through the intersection of Pennant Hills Roads and North Rocks Road.

Transport for NSW plans to widen Pennant Hills Road, between Woodstock Avenue and Murray Farm Road, and North Rocks Road to ease congestion, improve travel times and safety at the intersection for all road users.

Planned upgrades include:

  • widening Pennant Hills Road between Woodstock Road and Murray Farm Road,  to provide an additional extra through lane in each direction
  • widening North Rocks Road to install a second right turn lane from North Rocks Road onto Pennant Hills Road heading south
  • removing the left turn slip lane from Pennant Hills Road onto North Rocks Road west, to provide three northbound lanes
  • installing a new left turn slip lane from Pennant Hills Road to North Rocks Road heading east
  • adding an additional right turn lane for road users travelling eastbound on North Rocks Road and turning right into Pennant Hills Road
  • installing a raised median in the centre of Pennant Hills Road between Woodstock Road and Murray Farm Road and on North Rocks Road at the approaches to the Pennant Hills Road intersection
  • installing a new pedestrian crossing on the southern side of Pennant Hills Road and North Rocks Road intersection
  • permanently removing five unmarked car parking spaces on the northern side of North Rocks Road between Roselea Way and the pedestrian crossing near the St Gerard Majella’s Catholic Church
  • installing wide footpaths that can be upgraded to shared use paths in the future by the City of Parramatta council on:
    • the northern side of North Rocks Road between Roselea Way and Pennant Hills Road
    • the eastern side of Pennant Hills Road north between North Rocks Road and the mid-block crossing near Murray Farm Road
    • the southern side of North Rocks Road along a quarter of the block between Pennant Hills Road and Jenkins Road – the widen footpath will run for approximately 130 metres from the intersection
  • relocating two bus stops on Pennant Hills Road, bus stop ID 211831, 18 metres south and bus stop ID 2118174, 150 metres south to be nearer to the Roselea Community Centre
  • resurfacing the road and change signage
  • adjusting utilities, street lighting and drainage.

Transport for NSW consulted with the community on the current proposal between 23 November and 18 December 2020.

We received responses from 32 community members. Key areas of interest for community members included proposal justification, property impacts, safety of the pedestrians and the residents along the Pennant Hills Road and environmental impacts.

We have directly responded to questions or concerns raised and thank everyone for considering the proposal and for providing their feedback. The community consultation report detailing all the feedback and our responses was released in June 2021. View or download the consultation report (PDF, 2.18Mb).


  • ease congestion and improve travel times for all road users during peak periods
