Work is underway to widen King Georges Road between Stoney Creek Road in Beverly Hills and Forest Road in Hurstville.
King Georges Road is a major arterial road in our area, with more than 40,000 motorists using the road every day.
The Federal Government has committed $50 million towards reducing congestion on King Georges Road by widening it to three lanes in both directions.
Planning and community consultation has concluded with property adjustment works on the Penshurst and Hurstville sides of King Georges Road currently underway to prepare for the additional lanes.
An extended right turn bay will be installed for southbound traffic on King Georges Road turning into Percival Street. The right turn lane for traffic on King Georges Road northbound turning onto Stoney Creek Road will also be extended.
The project also includes the installation of underground electricity supply and new streetlight poles on parts of King Georges Road.
Works to widen the road are expected to take 18-24 months and will begin following the conclusion of current property adjustment works.
