Tanya Davies MP, Member for Mulgoa, today announced work will start this month to improve traffic flow on Roper Road at the M4 Motorway interchange at Colyton.

“The NSW Government provided $1.8 million for this essential project as part of its ongoing commitment to reduce congestion and improve road safety in Western Sydney,” Tanya Davies said.

Roads and Maritime Services will carry out work to extend the right lane on Roper Road, from Carlisle Avenue onto the M4 Motorway and build a new pedestrian path on the eastern side of Roper Road.

A new bus zone and pedestrian refuge will be built near Young Street and a no stopping zone will be installed southbound from Carlisle Avenue to the M4 on ramp as part of the upgrade.

Road resurfacing, kerb and gutter replacement and line marking will also be carried out.

To minimise disruption to motorists and residents, the project work will be carried out from Sunday to Thursday between 9pm and 5am from Tuesday 29 April until mid July, weather permitting.

Partial lane closures and reduced speed limits will be in place during work, and motorists should plan their journey; allowing extra travel time and following all signs and directions of traffic controllers.

Every effort will be made to minimise noise associated with this work.

“We thank motorists and residents for their patience while this important work is carried out,” Tanya Davies said.
