The upgrade of the Werrington Arterial Road is complete, with road users set to benefit from faster and safer access to the M4 Motorway.
The project included a widened two-kilometre section of the Kent Road and Gipps Street corridor to four lanes and two new east facing ramps to the M4 Motorway.
“Werrington Arterial Road is a game changer for Western Sydney motorists with the widening set to ease congestion on The Northern and Mamre Roads, reduce travel times and improve safety for motorists,” said Federal Minister for Urban Infrastructure Paul Fletcher.
“The upgrade forms part of the transformative $3.6 billion Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan which is building business confidence and making Western Sydney the place to invest.”
Minister for Western Sydney Stuart Ayres said key infrastructure is being delivered now to prepare for the region’s rapid growth.
“We’re cracking on with the delivery of vital arterial roads to ensure people who live and work in the area can get where they need to be faster,” Mr. Ayres said.
“This project has been a massive boom for local businesses, with more than $7 million worth of contracts awarded to 50 Western Sydney suppliers and contractors.”
