Posted by Monica Gameng

Major construction works on Stage 2 and 3 of the M4 Smart Motorway in New South Wales is set to commence in July 2018, with preliminary works already underway. Seymour Whyte will be heading the delivery of these two stages.

The two stages - valued at approximately $170 million - are part of the $470 million project that will upgrade a 35-kilometre stretch of the M4 Motorway between Lapstone and Mays Hill.

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

  • Installation of variable message signs, traffic sensors, CCTV, and speed and lane use signs between Pitt Street and Cumberland Highway
  • Realignment, extension and widening of ramps at Burnett Street, Coleman Street and Cumberland Highway, and installation of ramp meters and ramp control signs
