This part of the project is known as Stage 1B and will comprise of Widening Henry Lawson Drive to two lanes in each direction and creating new connections between Auld Avenue, Keys Parade, Raleigh Road and Henry Lawson Drive. Upgrades of key intersection at Keys Parade, Bullecourt Avenue, and Pozieres Avenue, such as turning lanes and traffic signals.

As a key connector road to Bankstown Airport and residential areas of Milperra, the upgrade will ensure drivers in this part of south-west Sydney will get a safer road with shorter travel times.

The designs for this section will incorporate improvements that have come out of community consultation, including changes to shared paths and crossings to minimise tree removal and improve safety.

Construction work on the nearby $144 million Stage 1A upgrade of Henry Lawson Drive is powering ahead, with widening and safety works between Auld Avenue and Tower Road, including the intersection with Newbridge Road.

New South Wales Minister for Roads John Graham said the project would help to provide an infrastructure boost for both local motorists and visitors alike.

“The Henry Lawson Drive upgrade is providing more capacity for motorists which means improved access for families to local schools and community facilities like the Auld Avenue sporting fields complex and Milperra Sports Centre,” Graham said.

“We listened to the community during consultation and have acted on that feedback. The revised proposal improves traffic flow by including lane widening on Keys Parade and Raleigh Road near the planned roundabout connecting the two roads.”
