The intersection of Camden Valley Way and Ingleburn Road will be temporarily closed until Tuesday 1 December 2015, weather permitting. This will allow us to build and realign a new intersection with Denham Court Road and Ingleburn Road as a four-way intersection with traffic lights.
There will be additional night work and extended Saturday work until mid-December 2015 to complete the final section of pavement on Camden Valley Way by the end of 2015. Our working hours for these night shifts will be Sunday to Friday from 8pm to 5am. Our extended working hours on Saturdays will be from 7am to 6pm.
We will keep you updated as the work progresses.

Camden Valley Way is a major arterial road linking the Hume Highway, M7 and M5 interchange at Prestons, near Liverpool, Camden, Narellan and Harrington Park in Sydney's south west.
Traffic levels in the area are predicted to grow in line with residential development in the South West Growth Centre.
Between 2005 and 2012, Roads and Maritime upgraded Camden Valley Way between the M5/M7 motorways interchange to Cowpasture Road, Horningsea Park and between Oran Park Drive (previously known as Cobbitty Road)and Narellan Road.
The NSW Government is now funding $280 million to complete the remaining section of Camden Valley Way between Oran Park Drive, Harrington Park and Bringelly Road, Leppington.
The upgrade is being delivered in three stages:
- Stage 1: 4.4 kilometre upgrade from Ingleburn Road to Raby Road, completed in November 2014.
- Stage 2: 3 kilometre upgrade from Raby Road to Oran Park Drive (previously known as Cobbitty Road), completed in November 2014.
- Stage 3: 3.2 kilometre upgrade from Bringelly Road to Ingleburn Road, due for completion in late 2015.
The key features of the project include:
- Two lanes upgraded to a four lane divided road
- A posted vehicle speed limit of 80 km/h
- A three metre wide, off-road shared pedestrian/cyclist path on the western side of the road
- Traffic lights at Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens Cemetery, Cowpasture Road South, Heath, St Andrews, Raby, Catherine Field and Springfield roads
- The realignment of Denham Court Road and Ingleburn Road to a four-way intersection with traffic lights
- Temporary u-turn facilities located opposite traffic lights at the intersections of Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens Cemetery and St Andrews Road
- Bridges over Water NSW Upper Canal and Bonds Creek
- Adjustments to public utilities such as gas, electricity and telephone services along the route
- A wide central median with landscaping consistent with other upgraded sections of Camden Valley Way
- The wide central median will allow for future widening to six lanes, when required in the future
- Bus priority capability at traffic lights and indented bus bays on each side of Camden Valley Way.
The key benefits to the community include:
- A road network with increased capacity for future traffic growth
- Improved safety for motorists by:
- Constructing new intersections with traffic lights
- Constructing a central median to separate opposing traffic flows
- Constructing turn bays at intersections
- Improved access to the M7 and M5 motorways
- Improved access and travel times for road freight in Sydney's south west
- Improved access and safety for cyclists and pedestrians by providing an off-road shared path
- New bus priority lanes at traffic lights.
Community involvement has informed the design and environmental assessment. Our response to community submissions can be found in our project documents.
The final stage of the upgrade, Stage 3 is currently under construction and is scheduled for completion in late 2015, weather permitting.
