Werrington Arterial Road on track
Friday, 20 May 2016
Construction of the $70 million Werrington Arterial Road is now more than two thirds complete and on target to open to motorists by the end of the year.
NSW Premier Mike Baird and Mulgoa MP Tanya Davies today inspected the project at Claremont Meadows, which will provide a crucial link between the M4 Motorway and Great Western Highway.
“We’re getting on with the job of improving key arterial roads in Western Sydney to reduce travel times and improve safety for motorists,” Mr Baird said.
“This upgrade is an important part of the $3.6 billion Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan being jointly funded by the NSW and Australian Governments.”
The Werrington Arterial Road upgrade includes widening a two kilometre section of the Kent Road and Gipps Street corridor to four lanes and building two new east facing ramps on the M4 Motorway to increase capacity and improve travel times for road users.
More than 70 per cent of the widening project has been completed and is due to open by the end of the year.
Mrs Davies said: “This project highlights the NSW Government’s commitment to accommodate major growth areas in Werrington and cut journey times for motorists north-south corridors of Mamre and The Northern Road.
“It’s also been a boon for local businesses with more than $14 million worth of contracts awarded to about 50 Western Sydney suppliers and contractors.”
Work is continuing on other major Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan projects including the $509 million Bringelly Road and $1.6 billion The Northern Road.
