A traffic jam on the city’s main artery could be a major problem for motorists, as some will miss out on the most important traffic flows.
A traffic jam could mean delays for hundreds of thousands of motorists on the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the M4, and even the A4.
The disruption could also cause road closures and cause traffic to be diverted.
This disruption will have an impact on travel times and congestion in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.
According to the Department of Transport, this disruption will cause a delay of up to two hours for most road users.
In the event of a traffic jam and/or delay, it will also affect motorists’ ability to travel and will cause congestion for other road users, including cyclists and pedestrians.
The NSW government has been asked to provide a plan for how to mitigate the impact of the disruption, as well as the timeline for implementing the plan.
“As a state government, we are working to ensure that all traffic users can access essential services safely, efficiently and at a cost to NSW residents,” a spokesman for the NSW Transport Minister, Scott Emerson, said.
While the plan is still in the works, the Minister said the department has received “a number of requests for input” and is working to implement the plan in a timely manner.
It is not clear how long it will take to implement this plan.
The plan, which is also being considered by the Department for the Environment, said it is a priority to have a dedicated network of traffic control signals to help alleviate the disruption caused by traffic jams.
But the NSW government’s plan is a bit more ambitious than that.
As part of its Traffic Jam Reduction Strategy, the government has proposed that the state should use the Sydney Metro Network as a way to implement traffic control signal networks across the state.
Sydney Metro is the regional network of interchanges and tunnels used to connect the city with the rest of NSW.
Metro operates from 11am to 5pm on weekdays, 11am and 4pm on weekends and the peak times on week days are 9am and 7pm.
To help alleviate traffic congestion, the NSW Government has identified a number of initiatives it says it will implement, including the opening of new bus lanes, widening the A1, and opening more bus stops.
Under the Metro plan, the state is also proposing to increase the number of stops along the Sydney Road from 14 to 21, and to open two additional bus stops along Sydney Road and the Sydney Motorway.
Although the government is looking to implement its traffic jam reduction plan by 2019, the number and timing of changes to traffic control systems will depend on the timing of major infrastructure projects, such as the Melbourne Metro expansion and the Northern Powerhouse.
If the Metro Network infrastructure project is completed before the Sydney peak time, there is a good chance the state’s traffic control system will be upgraded before then, but it will be up to the state to decide how to allocate resources for these upgrades.
