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 to The Northern Road, Bringelly.

The first 5.7km Bringelly Road Upgrade will widen the road to a six lane divided road between the eastern side of Upper Canal bridge and the western side of the Eastwood Road intersection, through the future Leppington Town Centre. The rest of Bringelly Road will also be upgraded from two lanes to a four lane divided road with a central median, which would allow for widening to six lanes, when required.
