Bringelly Road Upgrade
The Australian and NSW governments are upgrading Bringelly Road as part of the Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan, a 10 year, $3.6 billion road investment program.
Updates and announcements
The first section of the upgraded Bringelly Road was opened to traffic in December 2015. The new traffic lanes are the first to open as part of the Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan.
The Bringelly Road Upgrade will deliver new and upgraded roads to support integrated transport in the region and capitalise on the economic benefits from developing a western Sydney airport at Badgerys Creek. It will also improve safety, increase road capacity and reduce congestion and travel times in the future.
This 10km project will include the upgrade of Bringelly Road from two lanes 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.
The Bringelly Road Upgrade will be delivered in two stages:
- Stage 1: 5.7km between Camden Valley Way and King Street
- Stage 2: 4.3km between King Street and The Northern Road.
Roads and Maritime is also developing a proposal to upgrade the intersection of The Northern Road and Bringelly Road, Bringelly to a grade separated intersection (overpass).
The key features of the stage 1 project include:
- Upgrading Bringelly Road to a four lane divided road between Camden Valley Way and King Street. East of the Upper Canal bridge to Eastwood Road will be a six lane divided road
- An 80km/h speed limit and two metre wide shoulders
- Three metre wide off-road shared pedestrian and cyclist path
- Bus priority at traffic lights and indented bus bays
- Extending the current noise wall on Cowpasture Road 240 metres along Camden Valley Way.
The key benefits to the community include:
- Improved access to the western Sydney airport site at Badgerys Creek, Leppington Railway Station, the new Leppington Town Centre and the M5 and M7 motorways
- Increased road capacity
- Improved safety for motorists
- Better bus priority and facilities
- More reliable travel times
- Improved access and safety for pedestrians and cyclists through an off-road shared path.
Community involvement has informed the design and environmental assessment. Our response to community submissions can be found in our project documents.
Work started in March 2015 and is expected to finish in late 2017, weather permitting.
