Stage one of Werrington Arterial Road approved

Member for Mulgoa Tanya Davies today announced stage one of the Werrington Arterial Road project has been approved and the submissions report is now available online.

“This is great news for western Sydney motorists. The project aims to reduce travel times and improve road safety for those accessing the M4 Motorway and the Great Western Highway at Claremont Meadows,” Tanya Davies said.

“The submissions report has been developed in response to feedback on the review
of environmental factors report displayed for comment in December 2012 and January 2013.

“Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) received 50 submissions from the community and stakeholders. All submissions were considered by RMS and further work is under way as investigation and design for the road upgrade progresses.

“There were 48 submissions from the community and two from stakeholders, Endeavour Energy and Penrith City Council.

"Some of the most common issues raised included the potential traffic impact on local roads, potential noise while upgrade work is carried out and traffic noise once the upgrade is complete.

“RMS thanks the community for their feedback and will continue to develop measures to reduce any impacts to meet the conditions of approval for the project,” Bart Bassett said.

“Project updates will be posted on the RMS website and the local community will be kept up to date with the progress via letterbox drops.

“The NSW and Australian Governments are working together to continue planning for this project with the Australian Government contributing $7 million from the Nation Building Program and the NSW Government contributing $10 million.

“In April this year RMS engaged Hyder Consulting to carry out work on the detailed design which is expected to be completed by the end of the year,” Bart Bassett said.

The NSW Government announced in May this year that we had allocated our 50% share of funding towards the construction costs of the project and called on the Federal Government to commit to their share of the project.

The submissions report and further information is available on the project website at or by contacting Project Manager James Cahill during business hours on (02) 9352 9556 or by email at
