Homebush Bay Drive and Australia Avenue, Homebush intersection upgrade

View map Information sessions

The Australian and NSW Governments are investing $100 million to upgrade the intersection of Homebush Bay Drive, Australia Avenue and Underwood Road. The proposed upgrades will ease congestion, increase safety and improve travel times and connectivity to Homebush and Sydney Olympic Park for all road users.

The preferred option

Transport for NSW has now identified a preferred option to upgrade the intersection. A signalised intersection, configured as a Diverging Diamond Interchange, performed best overall when compared with the other options. This innovative intersection arrangement will improve safety, efficiency, and capacity at the intersection more effectively than a conventional signalised intersection. 

Key benefits of the preferred option include:

  • improved connectivity to Sydney Olympic Park residential, recreational and commercial growth areas
  • improved traffic flow and performance at the intersection
  • improved travel time savings for all road users, particularly during AM, PM and weekend peaks, and during special events at Sydney Olympic Park
  • improved travel times and service reliability for 525 and 526 bus routes users
  • improved safety for all road users at the intersection and approaches
  • safer and more efficient travel for pedestrians and cyclists
  • reduced vehicle operating costs for all road users
  • improved environmental and visual amenity.

We want to hear from you

Transport for NSW is seeking public feedback on the preferred option by Sunday 29 May 2022 at 5pm. We will use feedback from community members and stakeholders to further develop the proposal.
