Tenders open for Stage Two of Western Sydney's Narellan Road upgrade

Tenders open for Stage Two of Western Sydney's Narellan Road upgradeTenders are now open for the second phase of the $114 million Narellan Road upgrade in Western Sydney.

The upgrade includes the creating a 6.8 kilometre six-lane road between Camden Valley Way and Blaxland Road, supporting the south-west growth centre.

New South Wales Minister for Roads, Maritime and Freight Duncan Gay said the Narellan Road Stage Two upgrade will deliver significant benefits to Western Sydney motorists.

“Stage Two marks the final stage of the Narellan Road Upgrade and will deliver around 80 per cent of the overall works, widening 5.4 kilometres of the 6.8 kilometre project to six lanes,” Mr. Gay said.

The upgrade will also remove two notorious bottlenecks by widening the southbound on-ramps from the Hume Motorway and installing traffic lights at Kenny Hill Road to improve peak hour traffic flow along the Narellan Road corridor.

“Stage Two will connect to the Stage One upgrade, which is progressing well and includes installing additional right turn lanes and access points to the TAFE/University of Western Sydney, removing congestion at this key pinch point.”

A new purpose built response facility will be installed on Narellan Road and a new cable-stayed pedestrian bridge will also be installed over the Hume Motorway on the southern side of the existing bridge.

The Australian and New South Wales Governments have committed $53 million and $61 million to the Narellan Road upgrade respectively.

Stage One of the upgrade started July 2014 and will be completed in 2016. Stage Two is expected to start in 2016 and be completed in 2019.
