Cascades Road, Botany Downs - Roundabout metering signals Cascades Road, Botany Downs - Roundabout metering signals

Proposal status: open until 16 November 2018

Reference number: NOP1819-002

We're proposing changes in your area

​We are proposing to introduce roundabout metering signals on the eastern leg of Cascades Road at the intersection with Aviemore Drive.

The changes would also include:

  • Installation of in-road vehicle queue detection on both legs of Cascades Road.
  • Installation of broken yellow lines along the southern side of Cascades Road to the east of the intersection, including parking removal.
  • Addition of a second westbound lane on Cascades Road to the east of the intersection.

Why the changes are needed

​​​The proposal aims to improve the balance of traffic at the roundabout during peak periods and to reduce excessive queuing. Currently, heavy traffic on the eastern leg of Cascades Road is making it difficult for drivers from other legs to enter the roundabout during peak hour traffic.

Traffic metering would activate only when queues begin to develop and would better filter the number of vehicles entering the roundabout from the eastern leg of Cascades Road, creating gaps for vehicles from other legs.
