Works on Stage 2 - between Pitt Street, Mays Hill and Reservoir Road, Prospect - will include:

- Realignment, extension and widening of ramps at Mamre Road interchange
- Installation of ramp meters and ramp control signs at The Northern Road, Kent Street and mamre Road
Both stages will also include installation of maintenance bays, vehicle detection loops, emergency phones and upgrades to power and communication infrastructure.
The last two stages of the project will upgrade the M4 Motorway between Russell Street, Lapstone and Mulgoa Road, Penrith and both stages are yet to be awarded to a contractor. The entire five-stage project is due to be completed in 2020.
