Motorists will see 500 “intelligent” traffic lights, new “smart” motorways and digital parking signs installed under an ambitious $695 million “congestion busting” package from the NSW government.

In the Liberals’ marginal seat of East Hills on Friday, Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced her government, if re-elected, would ease congestion using “cutting edge” technology.

“This program will take pressure off families, whether going to work or dropping kids off at school, that you know relief is coming your way,” she said in the seat which the Liberals hold by a 0.4 per cent margin.

Ms Berejiklian said the government would spend $400 million to install intelligent traffic lights at 500 intersections that can read the flow of traffic and reduce the number of stops by 15 per cent in Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong.

Most of the lights will be in Sydney.

She also promised $200 million to turn the M1 between Sydney and Gosford into a smart motorway that can automatically adjust speeds and $95 million to trial digital parking and clearway signs.

Roads Minister Melinda Pavey said the investment would begin in July.

“The money is there, we would expect the traffic lights to be improved over the next 18 months to two years,” she said.

The pledge is on top of the $475 million plan to remove 12 "pinch points" in Sydney and introduce drones to monitor incidents in real time.

More to come.
