BOOST FOR WESTERN SYDNEY COMMUNITIES: DELIVERING $500 MILLION BRINGELLY ROAD UPGRADE

Thursday July 3, 2014

Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith, Tanya Davies MP, Member for Mulgoa and Bart Bassett MP, Member for Londonderry welcome the announcement that construction could start by the end of this year after the NSW and Australian governments called for tenders to build the first stage of the 10 kilometre upgrade of Bringelly Road.

 

Tanya Davies said this is great news for the local communities in my electorate of Mulgoa and a great step in the delivery of vital infrastructure for a future second airport at Badgery’s Creek.

 

“Tenders are now invited until Wednesday 13 August to build this first stage of the Bringelly Road upgrade.

 

Bart Bassett said the exciting news for Western Sydney communities is that Stage one is expected to be completed in 2017.

 

“The first stage will see a 5.7 kilometre upgrade of Bringelly Road between Camden Valley Way at Leppington and King Street at Rossmore.

 

Stuart Ayres MP said this will reduce travel times for road users in the South West Growth Centre and provide the infrastructure to deliver optimal access to the future Western Sydney Airport.

 

“The NSW and Australian governments have committed $500 million to upgrade Bringelly Road as part of a package of works around Badgery’s Creek Airport.

 

“The joint $3.5 billion Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan is expected to create 4,000 jobs and boost the local economy.”

 

“Nearby, the NSW Government’s $280 million upgrade of Camden Valley Way is progressing well with the upgrade expected to be opened in stages by the end of 2015. 

 

The $3.5 billion commitment for the Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan includes:

 

  • Bringelly Road – upgrade to four lanes from Camden Valley Way to the Northern Road (10km, $500 million)
  • The Northern Road – upgrade to a minimum of four lanes from Narellan to M4 Motorway (31km, $1.6 billion)
  • Elizabeth Drive Corridor – construction of a new  four lane motorway between the M7 Motorway and The Northern Road (14km, $1.25 billion)
  • Improve interchanges connecting The Northern Road and the new motorway with arterial roads
  • Local roads package – $200 million for local road upgrades
