Delivering better roads for Western Sydney

Tenders are now open for Stage Two of the $114 million upgrade of Narellan Road. The Western Sydney region is growing significantly, both in terms of its population and its contribution to the national economy. In fact, it is set to grow from two million (more than 40% of the Sydney metro population) to three million people over the next 20 years, and by the mid-2030s, one in every two Sydneysiders will call Western Sydney home. It comprises the North West and South West Growth Centres as well as the broader Western Sydney Employment Area. With such high growth, it's important that the infrastructure of the 21st century is in place.

Narellan Road Upgrade

"Narellan Road is a vital link between the Hume Motorway, The Northern Road and the University of Western Sydney, and his project will ensure residents of Campbelltown, Narellan and surrounding areas spend less time stuck in traffic and more time at home,” Federal Member for Macarthur Russell Matheson said.

The Australian and New South Wales governments have committed $53 million and $61 million to the Narellan Road upgrade respectively.

Stage One of the upgrade started July 2014, will be completed in 2016 and includes installing additional right turn lanes and access points to the TAFE/University of Western Sydney, removing congestion at this key pinch point.

Stage Two is expected to be awarded in late 2015, start in 2016 and be completed in 2019.

As part of the $3.6 billion Western Sydney Infrastructnure plan, Narellan Road will deliver a 6.8 kilometre six-lane road between Camden Valley Way and Blaxland Road.

Stage Two marks the final stage of the Narellan Road Upgrade and will deliver around 80 per cent of the overall works, widening 5.4 kilometres of the 6.8 kilometre project to six lanes. The upgrade will also remove two notorious bottlenecks by widening the southbound on-ramps from the Hume Motorway and installing traffic lights at Kenny Hill Road to improve peak hour traffic flow along the Narellan Road corridor.

A new purpose built response facility will be installed on Narellan Road, which will greatly improve accident response times on Narellan Road and the Hume Motorway and ensure traffic is returned to normal sooner.

A new cable-stayed pedestrian bridge will also be installed over the Hume Motorway on the southern side of the existing bridge to improve safety for local residents.
