The Northern Road upgrade between Narellan and Bringelly

Between The Old Northern Road Narellan and Mersey Road Bringelly

Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) is planning for the future upgrade of The Northern Road in conjunction with the development of the South West Growth Centre.

The revised concept design for the widening of The Northern Road from a two lane road to a four lane divided road and a review of environmental factors (REF) were displayed for community comment in October 2012. The REF is available to view or download on the project documents page.

RMS has considered all community feedback received during the REF display period. A submissions report summarising the issues raised in all submissions and providing responses to each issue is now available to view or download from the project documents page.

BACKGROUND

The proposed upgrade of The Northern Road is approximately 15 kilometres long and would form one of the main arterial transport corridors within the South West Growth Centre.

As residential and commercial development occurs, the amount of traffic using The Northern Road is expected to increase.

The Northern Road is expected to be upgraded in stages in conjunction with the development of precincts, to provide road transport capacity for the growing population of Sydney's south west.
