Bandon Road

The NSW Government is planning for the future by finalising the new Bandon Road corridor between Richmond Road, Marsden Park and Windsor Road, Vineyard. Bandon Road is part of the North West Growth Centre Road Network Strategy.

The Bandon Road corridor would connect Richmond Road, Marsden Park to Windsor Road, Vineyard.

This corridor would deliver an additional road connection between Richmond Road and Windsor Road providing alternative access across the North West Growth Area and reducing traffic congestion within Riverstone.  A new Bandon Road corridor is one of a number of projects in planning that are part of the North West Growth Area Road Network Strategy. You can find a copy of the North West Growth Area Road Network Strategy map within this update.

The Bandon Road corridor has now been finalised Community consultation on the preferred Bandon Road corridor started in August 2016. Finalising this corridor is the result of the formal consultation process and community and stakeholder engagement Roads and Maritime Services carried out over several years. This finalised corridor has been sent to NSW

Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) to include in the precinct plans for Marsden Park North.
