Narellan Road Upgrade Stage 2

The Australian and NSW governments are funding a $114 million upgrade of Narellan Road to reduce congestion and improve safety and travel times.

Roads and Maritime Services began building Stage 2 in January 2016 and expects to finish by mid-2018.

Construction work will generally be carried out Mondays to Fridays between 7am and 6pm and on Saturdays between 8am and 1pm.

Existing traffic congestion on Narellan Road is expected to continue during peak traffic times until the upgrade is completed.

Updates and announcements

Temporary closure of the southbound M31 Hume Motorway

A temporary closure of the M31 Hume Motorway between the Campbelltown Road exit and Narellan Road exit will be in place between 8pm Saturday 11 February and 9am Sunday 12 February 2017. These works are required in order to widen the Narellan Road bridge as part of Stage 2 of the Narellan Road Upgrade (PDF, 495Kb).

Traffic detours will be in place via the Campbelltown Road exit for motorists travelling to Narellan Road. For safety reasons, a reduced speed limit of 40km/h will be in place on Narellan Road adjacent to the work area.

Motorists will be able to re-enter the southbound M31 Hume Motorway via the Narellan Road on ramp. Northbound traffic travelling on the M31 Hume Motorway will be unaffected.

Night work

Speed limit reduction

In order to widen the Narellan Road Bridge over the M31 Hume Motorway and to build the new shared path bridge, the speed on the northbound lanes of the M31 will be temporarily reduced to 100km/h. The reduction will only apply between the Narellan Road on and off ramps until around late March 2017. For safety of motorists and workers, critical activities that require further speed reductions will be scheduled at night between 9pm and 5am when there is less traffic.
