Design released for $100m Mulgoa and Castlereagh Roads upgrade in NSW


Posted by Monica Gameng

The preferred design for the Mulgoa and Castlereagh Roads upgrade has been released, with a $100 million in funds allocated to progress Stage 1 of the project.

According to Federal Minister for Urban Infrastructure Paul Fletcher, the New South Wales and Australian Governments are working together to progress the widening works on the 6.5-kilometre corridor between Penrith and the M4 Motorway which will improve travel times and reduce congestion once completed.

The Mulgoa Road corridor upgrade is a vital piece of infrastructure we’re determined to fast track with $100 million allocated to progress Stage 1, between Jeanette Street at Regentville and Blaikie Road at Jamisontown, and designs complete for the next stages.

“The full upgrade will provide three lanes in each direction along the full 6.5-kilometre route along with upgraded intersections, including traffic-light intersection at Andrews Road, Coreen Avenue and Glenmore Parkway with the community now invited to view the latest plans,” Mr Fletcher said.



Minister for Western Sydney and Member for Penrith Stuart Ayres said that this progressive upgrade of the 6.5-kilometre corridor will bring relief to motorists as well as offer faster travel to a better motorway network.

“Already carrying almost 4,000 cars per hour in the morning and afternoon peak, we need to boost capacity now and upgrade intersections to improve travel across Penrith.

“Through a staged delivery to widen the entire 6.5 kilometre corridor, we’ll minimise disruption and ensure we tackle the priority areas first, making Penrith an even better place to live and work,” Mr Ayres said.
