New milestone reached on Bringelly Road upgrade
14 November 2018
Work on the Bringelly Road upgrade between Leppington and Rossmore is driving towards the finish line with traffic to be moved onto the final road alignment in mid November.
Mr Patterson said work on the upgrade between Camden Valley Way and King Street is moving into the final stage of work which will permanently change the way motorists access Leppington, Rossmore and Bringelly.
“The Australian and NSW governments have funded the $509 million upgrade of Bringelly Road between Camden Valley Way at Leppington and The Northern Road at Bringelly as part of the $3.6 billion Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan,” Mr Patterson said.
“Motorists have experienced significant changes along Bringelly Road since the start of 2015 so it is great to see the project is closer to completion.
“While traffic will be moved onto the final road alignment, there is still work to do on the upgrade which will provide road users with a minimum of four lane divided road between Camden Valley Way and King Street.
“More than 13 kilometres of new stormwater systems have been installed and more than 125,000 square metres of asphalt laid since the project started so the upgrade is progressing very well.
“This upgrade is just another example of the Australian and NSW governments delivering new and improved infrastructure for the future generations of Western Sydney.”
Mr Patterson said crews will continue to carry out work until Friday 30 November between 7pm and 5am to complete the essential activities.
“Work will be carried out to complete the new traffic lights at King Street, Eastwood Road, Dickson Road, Rickard Road, Cowpasture Road and Skyline Crescent intersections as well as work at the busy intersection of Bringelly Road, Camden Valley Way and Cowpasture Road,” Mr Patterson said.
“Crews will also be asphalting, line marking, installing signs and completing crossings across Bonds Creek, Scalabrini Creek and Kemps Creek.
“Once complete, the new 5.7 kilometre stretch of Bringelly Road will increase capacity for expected future traffic growth and improve travel times for all road users.
“Detours will be in place while work is carried out at night so road users are encouraged to plan ahead and follow the direction of all signs.”
Electronic message signs will be in place to advise road users of changes and access to properties will be maintained while work is carried out.
