Traffic diversions around the University during peak times

NSW Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) will be managing traffic congestion around the University during the start of the academic year to improve safety for all road users, with temporary traffic changes being implemented during peak periods.

RMS will be monitoring traffic queues and when required during peak periods, traffic travelling southbound on the M1 will be diverted onto an alternative Western Access route. Traffic controllers will divert all westbound traffic on University Avenue left into Irvine Street, to access the University via Murphys Avenue and Robsons Road.

Peak period diversions may be implemented between 8.15am and 8.45am from Tuesday to Thursday for up to the first six weeks of session.
