The first stage of the Narellan Road upgrade in Western Sydney is now complete and open to traffic.
Minister for Major Projects, Territories and Local government, Paul Fletcher, said Western Sydney is one of Australia’s fastest growing regions.
“Stage one of the $114 million Narellan Road upgrade between Narellan and Campbelltown has been delivered on time and is open to traffic,” Fletcher said.
“Narellan Road has been widened to six lanes and a series of traffic lights has been installed to reduce traffic congestion, prevent delays and improve access to the TAFE and Western Sydney University education hub.”
The project aims to provide significant safety benefits to nearby communities including Campbelltown, Mount Annan, Camden and Narellan.
Minister for Roads, Duncan Gay, said more than $15 million worth of contracts were awarded to Western Sydney suppliers.
“Construction on this project has provided more job opportunities for people in the local community, which will continue to increase as work ramps up on the next stage,” Gay said.
“A new Incident Response Facility has been built to allow crews to immediately respond to accidents on the Hume Motorway and surrounding areas.”
“This means incidents in the area can be addressed faster and traffic returned to normal sooner.”
Stage two of the project is currently underway.
