Members of the community are encouraged to provide feedback on the strategic design and preferred option for one of western Sydney’s key transport corridors.

Member for Mulgoa Tanya Davies said Mamre Road passes through the Western Sydney Priority Growth Area while providing connections to the Western Sydney Employment Area, which is why the NSW Government has started planning for the upgrade.

“The proposed 10 kilometre upgrade of Mamre Road between the M4 Motorway at St Clair and Kerrs Road at Mount Vernon will provide an improved link between the M4 Motorway in the north and the proposed interchange with M12 Motorway in the south,” Tanya Davies said.

“The proposed upgrade will provide two lanes in each direction with the provision for a future third lane in each direction and upgraded intersections along the route.

“The upgrade will improve road capacity catering for future population and employment growth while reducing travel times and improving road safety for motorists travelling through western Sydney.”

Tanya Davies said the Mamre Road upgrade is part of a plan to progressively upgrade arterial roads in western Sydney to deliver a more efficient, reliable network that meets the future needs of the community and the economy.

“Following the public display of the recommended option and strategic design, Roads and Maritime Services will consider community submissions before finalising the new road corridor.

“This will be followed by development of a concept design and environmental assessment, subject to funding.

“Roads and Maritime will continue to keep the community updated as the project progresses.”

Feedback on the proposed upgrade is invited until Friday 15 December and will be considered when finalising the proposal.

Comments can be provided by emailing mamreroadupgrade@rms.nsw.gov.au or by writing to Mamre Road Upgrade, PO Box 973, Parramatta NSW 2124.

The community is invited to attend two community information sessions to be held on 25 November at Banks Public School, St Clair between 10am and 1pm and 29 November at Luddenham Golf and Country Club, Luddenham between 3pm and 7pm to speak with the project team, provide feedback and learn more about the upgrade.
