People driving children to play touch football at the Waratah sports ground on Wednesdays are being caught in regular traffic jams.
Cr Jason Hamling said the situation was a "dog's breakfast" and parents were complaining to him about the delays.
Cr Hamling said the bottle neck occurred around the Northern Distributor Road and Telopea Way near McDonalds.
"The cars were banked up. I've got children playing junior touch out there. I get fairly well accosted by angry parents every time I get out of the car about the state of it," he said.
Work on constructing a new roundabout on the NDR at the top of Hill Street has affected traffic flows in the area. "They know there is a roundabout coming and they get that and they can't wait for that to come in," he said.

"Is there any way we could have police up there to do some traffic marshalling? It's just for a couple of hours on that Wednesday afternoon where the traffic is banked up.
"Any help we can give the residents up there while we are doing the roundabout they would appreciate that."
Technical Services director Ian Greenham said construction of the roundabout at the NDR and Hill Street had been delayed by wet weather during winter.
However, he said it should be finished before Christmas.
Mr Greenham said following a council request Transport for NSW had adjusted the timing of traffic lights at the Telopea Way intersection which had helped.
He said he tested the situation turning into the NDR from Hill Street and left into Telopea Way recently and had to wait for two turns before being able to pass through the intersection.
"That banking up on the NDR to get through there has been a bit of an issue," he said.
"I did test it out myself two Wednesdays ago and I was stopped twice at the same set of lights. The adjustment has been done since then."
Cr Tony Mileto said he was concerned about the safety of children due to the traffic situation at Waratah sports ground.
He said the games could have been moved to Sir Jack Brabham Park.
"What I don't understand is when the touch association knew that road was going to be re-developed why there was no representation made to council to transfer it for a period of time to Jack Brabham Park," he said.
He said while the the touch association did not have a clubhouse at Sir Jack Brabham Park there was ample room for the competitions.
Last week's council meeting was told it was expected council would discuss the situation with the touch football organisers.
