Bridge eliminates accident blackspot
The new bridge carrying Roberts Road over the Hume Highway and railway tracks at Chullora, Sydney, was opened in August 1998, three months ahead of schedule. The $15 million bridge is the centrepiece of a $55m upgrade at the intersection of Roberts Road, Centenary Drive and the Hume Highway.
The upgrade, which includes widening of the Hume Highway, removes a notorious accident blackspot and traffic bottleneck. This intersection was responsible for up to 40 traffic accidents every year. Many of these occurred at peak hour and often involved many vehicles, dramatically affecting traffic flow and causing frustrating delays. The upgrade also improves access to the Homebush Olympic site.
