Minister and Member for Campbelltown hold talks on Campbelltown Road
Bryan Doyle, Member for Campbelltown today convened an urgent meeting with the Roads Minister Duncan Gay, Campbelltown City Council Mayor Sue Dobson and General Manager Paul Tosi, to discuss the proposed upgrade of Campbelltown Road.
“During our discussions I sought and secured an additional four week extension for the community to comment on the Review of Environmental Factors (REF),” he said.
“The upgrade from Camden Valley Way at Casula to Brooks Road at Denham Court is a key project to meet the growing demand in the region and we want the community to be appropriately consulted,” Mr Doyle said.
“Today after gaining the immediate support of Minister Gay, an extension for feedback has been granted until Friday 28 June,” he said.
“South Western Sydney is a key growth area the proposed upgrade will improve road safety and increase capacity for traffic expected from the South West Growth Centre precincts while minimising impacts on the heritage of the area, such as historic Denham Court House,” he said.
“More than 40 submissions have already been received so far on the proposal which includes a shared path for pedestrians and cyclists, new intersections with traffic lights, and a second bridge over the F5 Freeway / M31 Hume Motorway,” he said.
“Community information has been delivered to residents to clarify areas of concern including that neither the Brooks Road intersection with Campbelltown Road nor reopening the ramps between Brooks Road west and the M31 Hume Motorway are in the project scope.
“Community understanding of the proposal contained within the REF is key to a successful upgrade, as all submissions are considered and changes made where appropriate.
“Community submissions help RMS balance all aspects of the project including managing traffic capacity, access arrangements, environment, heritage and construction,
“I encourage the community to take the opportunity of this additional four weeks to have their say to ensure the most appropriate project is planned and designed,”
