Preferred design released for Mulgoa Road corridor upgrade

The 6.5-kilometre corridor between the city of Penrith and the M4 Western Motorway in Sydney will be upgraded to cut journey times and reduce congestion.The Australian and New South Wales Governments have released the preferred design for the Mulgoa and Castlereagh Roads upgrade.

The 6.5-kilometre corridor between the city of Penrith and the M4 Western Motorway in Sydney will be widened and upgraded to cut journey times and reduce congestion.

“The Mulgoa Road corridor upgrade is a vital piece of infrastructure we’re determined to fast track with $100 million allocated to progress Stage 1, between Jeanette Street at Regentville and Blaikie Road at Jamisontown, and designs complete for the next stages,” said Federal Minister for Urban Infrastructure Paul Fletcher.

“The full upgrade will provide three lanes in each direction along the full 6.5-kilometre route along with upgraded intersections, including traffic-light intersections at Andrews Road, Coreen Avenue and Glenmore Parkway with the community now invited to view the latest plans.”

New South Wales Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies, welcomed the $100 million funding boost for the first stage of the project which comes in addition to the $70 million allocated to progress work for the Jane Street upgrade project.

“This upgrade will do more for the community than just congestion busting; it will improve bus travel times with priority at intersections, improved pedestrian paths and cycling connections on the eastern side and a footpath on the western side.”
