Narellan Road Upgrade Stage 2

The Australian and NSW governments are funding the 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

Cyclist access reopened

Work on the southbound entry ramp onto the M31 Hume Motorway is nearly complete and cyclist access has been reopened. All detour signage along Narellan Road and Camden Bypass will now be removed. The speed limit on this section of the road will remain 80km/h until work completion at the end of April.

New pedestrian/cyclist bridge

In early December 2017 the project team lifted the new pedestrian/cyclist bridge over the M31 Hume Motorway into place. The bridge will be fully completed in the coming weeks - This video captures the installation of the bridge which happened over a few nights:

 

Night works

To minimise impacts to motorists, some work for the Narellan Road upgrade will need to take place at night.
