Have your say on a wider, safer Prospect Highway
Have your say on a wider, safer Prospect Highway from Prospect to Blacktown
2 June 2014
The community is invited to have a say on the future upgrade of the Prospect Highway between Reservoir Road at Prospect and St Martins Crescent at Blacktown this month.
“The Prospect Highway is an undivided two lane road and forms the main road corridor connecting Blacktown with the M4 Motorway,” Parliamentary Secretary for Transport and Roads Ray Williams MP said.
“The NSW Government has provided $2 million this financial year to continue planning the Prospect Highway upgrade which aims to increase safety and capacity for all road users.
“To cater for expected traffic growth in the area the proposal will deliver a four lane divided road with duplicate bridges across the M4 Highway and the Great Western Highway.
“A new two-way link road will also be built between the Great Western Highway and the Prospect Highway to improve travel for motorists with new traffic lights, a pedestrian footpath and kerbside bus lanes to improve safety.
“To ensure the project meets community need we’re inviting feedback to the proposed concept design and Review of Environmental Factors on public display by Monday 30 June.
“Community members are invited to drop in and meet the project team at information sessions on Saturday 14 June from 10am to 2pm and Wednesday 18 June from 3.30pm to 7pm at Shelley Public School on Hadrian Avenue at Blacktown.
“The Review of Environmental Factors for the project will also be displayed online at www.rms.nsw.gov.au/roadprojects.
Written comments are invited until Monday 30 June 2014 to: Prospect Highway Upgrade, Roads and Maritime Services, PO Box 973, Parramatta CBD NSW 2124 or by email to ProspectHighway@rms.nsw.gov.au.
“We thank community members for their interest in the project and will consider all feedback in the final upgrade design.
“Following approval of a final concept design, detailed design and building can start subject to confirmation of funding.”
