What’s this about?

In 2017 Transport for NSW spoke to the community about proposed improvements to this intersection.

In response to this feedback, the following revisions were made:  

Blaxland and Balaclava Road

  • Widening of Balaclava Road for a second right turn lane from Balaclava Road into Blaxland Road
  • Adjustment to the traffic lights for vehicles turning right from Blaxland Road onto Balaclava Road 
  • Kerb and footpath extension on the northbound side on Blaxland Road to stop vehicle access into Ball Avenue from the intersection
  • Introduction of a new No Parking area between 6am and 10am and between 3pm and 7pm weekdays along the westbound side of Balaclava Road. 

Pedestrian and bike users

  • Widening of the existing shared path at the north-eastern corner and the space for pedestrian and bike users at the south-eastern corner of the intersection
  • Footpath extension on the northbound side of Blaxland Road. 
  • Relocation of the existing pedestrian and bicycle crossing to the southern approach of Blaxland Road
  • Relocation of the existing bus shelter and installing new tactile indicators.

A new public space for the local community

  • Creation of a fenced dog park at Moore Park

The benefits of these changes 

  • Improved road safety for all road users
  • Reduced traffic light queueing
  • Better traffic flow north and south, will reduce travel time for road users
  • Improved pedestrian and bike rider safety. 


We invite your feedback on the proposal, including your ideas for the fenced dog park, to help make this a better place to walk, ride and travel around.
