Roads and Maritime Services is delivering the $509 million Bringelly Road Upgrade in two stages. Stage 1 is from Camden Valley Way, Leppington to King Street, Rossmore. Stage 2 is from King Street, Rossmore to The Northern Road, Bringelly.
Roads and Maritime has finalised the detailed design for Stage 2. We expect to start construction in mid-2017 and be open to traffic in mid-2020.

- Upgrading from two lanes to a four lane divided road with a central median, which would allow for widening to six lanes, when required
