Tanya Davies MP has joined Penrith Mayor Ross Fowler and local resident Emilio Vianello to welcome the upcoming upgrades to The Northern Road, which will include improvements at Kingshill Road intersection.
Mayor Ross Fowler said that Penrith City Council is committed to working alongside the NSW Government to ensure that the local community is provided with these vital upgrades.
Tanya Davies MP, Member for Mulgoa said that she has fought hard to secure these improvements for the residents of Mulgoa and the wider community.
“I am pleased that the State Government has listened to the needs of the Mulgoa community, and are delivering these local intersection improvements as a part of the major upgrades to The Northern Road,” said Tanya Davies.
Mr Vianello said that he is glad to see that the State Government is committed to improving the intersection of Kingshill Road and The Northern Road.
“After many years of lobbying Local and State Governments on both Kings Hill and Chain-O-Ponds intersections, I am glad to see that work is finally going to happen. Hopefully the RMS can fast track the upgrades to The Northern Road to provide the ultimate level of safety that the community deserves,” said Mr Vianello.
Local Government measures are going to improve the safety of the Kingshill Road intersection while the RMS progress The Northern Road upgrade.
The Upgrades to Kingshill Road is part of the NSW Government’s 2015-16 record road safety budget of $307 million, made up of State and Federal contributions. $304,000 in NSW Government funding has been allocated in the 2015-16 Budget for improvements to local and regional roads through the Safer Roads Program.
