1 March 2016
Member for Riverstone, Kevin Conolly MP announced today that road users will benefit from safety improvements at the intersection of Richmond Road and South Street at Marsden Park with new traffic lights to be switched on from 5am Friday 4 March as part of the Richmond Road upgrade project.
“The NSW Government is funding the $96 million upgrade of Richmond Road between Townson Road and north of Garfield Road West to increase road capacity and improve safety in the North West Priority Growth Area,” Kevin Conolly said.
Traffic will also be moved onto a new section of road between Grange Avenue and South Street as part of the work. To prepare for the traffic switch and intersection changes, night work will be carried out from 8pm Wednesday 2 March until 5am Friday 4 March, weather permitting.
Access for residents and motorists will be maintained while this work is under way. Traffic control and signs will be in place to help direct motorists and electronic message signs will display any changes to work dates and times.
“The NSW Government is aware that motorists may experience minor delays during this work due to these changed traffic conditions and the community is thanked in advance for its patience while the work is carried out” said Kevin Conolly.
Motorists are asked to plan ahead, allow extra time for their journeys and to adhere to the reduced speed limits as marked for their own safety.
“Meanwhile, work on the Richmond Road upgrade from Townson Road and north of Garfield Road West is well underway and expected to be completed later this year” said Kevin Conolly.
