Glenbrook intersection upgrade Submissions Report now available
1 February 2018
Roads and Maritime Services today announced the Submissions Report for the Glenbrook intersection upgrade has been finalised and is now available for the community to view online.
The Australian and NSW governments allocated funding to upgrade the Great Western Highway and Ross Street intersection at Glenbrook as part of the Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan.
A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said a total of 97 submissions were received during the consultation process, with all feedback considered and responded to in the report.
“After considering all responses, including project aims and design requirements, Roads and Maritime has decided to progress the project to the next stage,” the spokesperson said.
“The upgrade will include new traffic lights at Ross Street to permit safe right turns onto the Great Western Highway, extending the existing right turn lanes on the Great Western Highway, and closing access to the Great Western Highway from Hare Street to improve safety for motorists.
“Importantly, emergency vehicles will still be able to access the Great Western Highway from Hare Street by use of a mountable kerb.
“A contract to carry out the work is expected to be awarded soon with work anticipated to start in the coming months and finish in late 2018.
“Roads and Maritime would like to thank everyone who took the time to consider the proposal and provide their thoughts on the project.”
The community and stakeholders are invited to view the submissions report online, and stay up-to-date with the progress of the project at Glenbrook Intersection upgrade.
