Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith and Tanya Davies MP, Member for Mulgoa invite community members to have a say on the major upgrade of the Mulgoa Road and Castlereagh Road corridor between Glenmore Park and Penrith to improve transport connections in Western Sydney.
“The NSW Government has provided $1 million this financial year to progress planning and investigations for the 6.5 kilometre upgrade and widening of Mulgoa Road and Castlereagh Road between Glenmore Park and Penrith,” Stuart Ayres said.
“This project aims to ease congestion and accommodate future traffic growth on a major road corridor which provides a vital link between Penrith, the M4 motorway, and other parts of Greater Sydney.
“Mulgoa Road is currently used by up to 3,800 vehicles in the morning and afternoon peak and this upgrade aims to get traffic moving again on this key transport corridor.
“The proposed upgrade would improve road safety for motorists between Glenmore Parkway at Glenmore Park and Andrews Road at Penrith, enhance transport connections for Western Sydney and ensure the road network meets demand now and in the future.
Tanya Davies said as part of the project planning, Roads and Maritime Services will carry out investigation work in the coming months.
“Local knowledge of the area and community feedback is important to further develop the preferred option.
“All community feedback received will be considered in developing the project.”
Tanya Davies said the project forms part of a plan to progressively upgrade a number of major arterial roads in Western Sydney, including the Jane Street and Mulgoa Road intersection upgrade which will be planned in coordination.
“These important road upgrades will deliver a more efficient road network and meet the future needs of the local community” added Stuart Ayres.
Roads and Maritime Services encourages community members to send comments by Friday 25 September 2015 to Mulgoa Road/Castlereagh Road Corridor Upgrade, Roads and Maritime Services PO Box 973 Parramatta NSW 2124, or to [email protected].
