Tanya Davies MP, Member for Mulgoa, is inviting the community to ‘have a say’ on the preferred corridor for a major upgrade of The Horsley Drive between the M7 Motorway and Cowpasture Road at Horsley Park.
Tanya Davies said feedback was important to further develop the preferred option for the upgrade which aims to improve road safety, reduce congestion and support future growth on this important freight link.
“The Horsley Drive upgrade would increase capacity by widening the road to two lanes in each direction with a central median to accommodate six lanes in the future.
“Intersection upgrades would be carried out at Cowpasture Road and Ferrers Road to improve traffic flow, with the road realigned to improve safety.
“Pedestrians and cyclists would also benefit with an off road shared path connecting to Western Sydney Regional Parkland cycleway to be built as part of the work” said Tanya Davies.
The NSW Government had allocated $1.5 million this financial year to progress planning for the important upgrade.
“Learn more and have a say on the project at information sessions to be held on Wednesday 2 September from 5pm-8pm at the Prairiewood Youth and Community Centre, 194-222 Restwell Road, Prairiewood and on Saturday 5 September from 10am-12pm at Horsley Park Hall, The Horsley Drive, Horsley Park,” Tanya Davies said.
All feedback will be considered in finalising the project design and community members are encouraged to have a say by Friday 18 September 2015.
“Roads and Maritime will continue to work with the community and stakeholders including Western Sydney Parklands Trust, Water NSW, Fairfield City Council and Transport for NSW to develop the project,” Tanya Davies said.
