Peak hour conditions plague some of Sydney’s major roads all day

Motorists are having to endure peak-hour conditions on some of Sydney’s roads throughout the entire day.

Military Road on Sydney’s North Shore is seeing congestion from 7am to 6pm, with speeds ranging between 22km/h and 35km/h.

Parts of Parramatta Road in the city’s west see an average of just 16km/h in afternoon periods.

One explanation for the spread in congestion is a change in working arrangements, as Australians reject the 9 to 5 format.

NSW Roads Minister Melinda Pavey says the news is positive and it’s indicative employees are responding to the needs of everyday Australians.

“Credit to bosses, whether they be in the public or the private sector, responding to the needs of the community,” she tells Ben Fordham.

She says the NSW Government has installed over 450km-worth of clearways to improve conditions for motorists.
