WestConnex: traffic solutions for Alexandria, Erskineville and St Peters

WestConnex: traffic solutions for Alexandria, Erskineville and St Peters


We're progressing on the approval of proposed traffic calming treatments to reduce the impacts of WestConnex on local roads in Alexandria.

View consultation

In April 2018, we asked what you would like to see us do to protect your neighbourhood from the WestConnex toll motorway project.   

We presented you with several options. These included full and partial road closures, traffic lights, turn restrictions, slow points and continuous footpath treatments.

An independent consultant analysed more than 700 submissions on these options. Our traffic operations team used this to develop a plan that best represents your feedback.

You can now view the plan and presentation from the public meeting held on Wednesday, 14 November at Alexandria Town Hall.

The plan will need to be endorsed by our Local Pedestrian, Cycling and Traffic Calming Committee and approved by Council and Roads and Maritime Services.

We will update this page with committee details shortly.

Public consultation: 5 April to 1 June 2018 

We have commissioned a new independent study to protect local streets from increased traffic from the St Peters Interchange, which will be part of WestConnex.

City staff have reviewed the results of the study and identified a suite of treatments including road closures. The City proposes an integrated traffic plan that applies a precinct-wide approach to ensure the problem is tackled collectively rather than street-by-street.

Now we need your feedback so we can develop a final plan together.

The final plan needs to be endorsed by the Local Pedestrian, Cycling and Traffic Calming Committee and approved by Council. It then needs final approval from Roads and Maritime Services so it's important we work together to present a strong case.

How to give your feedback 

We have scheduled a public meeting and community drop-in session at Alexandria Town Hall on:

  • Thursday 5 April 6pm–7.30pm (public meeting)
  • Saturday 7 April 3.30pm–5pm (drop-in session)
  • Thursday 24 May 5.30pm–7pm – extra session due to high level of community interest.
  • These sessions will give you an opportunity to discuss the results face-to-face with City staff. 

The Alexandria Residents Action Group will also be holding a meeting on Wednesday 11 April at 7pm, at Alexandria Town Hall (73 Garden Street). The group will discuss the study and the options proposed. This will be another opportunity to view the plans and speak to City staff and your neighbors.

You can also view the study and provide your feedback by completing our survey.

To make sure everyone has their say, this consultation will be open until 5pm Friday 1 June 2018.

Please note, your feedback may be published in publicly available reports at the end of the consultation period. If you would like your feedback to remain confidential, please email sydneyyoursay@cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au.
