Paving the way for improvements to Pitt Town roads
Thursday, 5 July 2018
Planning work has started in the Pitt Town area on major road projects which will increase traffic flows, reduce congestion and improve road safety.
Member for Hawkesbury Dominic Perrottet said work crews were already on the ground planning for the Pitt Town Bypass and intersection improvements to Pitt Town Road.
“Pitt Town residents have told me about the need for better traffic flow and safety around the town centre. These improvements fix that and also better connect McGraths Hill and Cattai”, Mr Perrottet said.
Roads and Maritime Services recently commenced planning for key intersection improvements on Pitt Town Road between Windsor and Glebe roads as part of a $7 million grant from infrastructure contributions secured by the Department of Planning and Environment through planning agreements with developers active in the Pitt Town area.
Field work and technical studies including surveys, traffic, environmental and heritage investigations are currently being carried out to assist with project planning.
These works come in conjunction with preparation works and planning for the Pitt Town Bypass with the $6.5million allocated to the project in the 2018/19 State Budget.
“The Pitt Town bypass will provide better travel times on Pitt Town and Cattai roads. It’s great news for families who’ll be able to get their kids to and from school faster and have more time together in the evenings”, said Mr Perrottet.
Additionally, four intersections along Pitt Town Road between Windsor and Glebe roads will be improved.
“This is a great outcome for residents of Pitt Town, it will bring massive benefits to the area and to the greater Hawkesbury region.”President of Pitt Town Progress Association Peter Ryan welcomed the announcement.
“Our Association is extremely happy that work has commenced and we look forward to the finished result,” “I would like to thank Mr Perrottet for his efforts and commitment to this project,” Mr Ryan said.
