Major works are now underway for the Mulgoa Road upgrade between Jeanette Street and Blaikie Road.
Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies said that this section of the Mulgoa Road upgrade will expand the road from two to three lanes in either direction.
“Mulgoa Road is one of Western Sydney’s key arterial roads with 52,000 car movements every day and this project will address the main pinch point, ensuring a smooth and reliable route for locals and visitors,” Mrs Davies said.
“Construction alone will create around 220 full time jobs through the lifetime of the project which will be a major boost to the local economy.”
“The Mulgoa Road upgrade is not just about adding an extra lane in each direction, it’s about creating a sustainable transport network that benefits everyone. This includes bus priority measures, upgraded paths, and noise barriers to minimize the impact on nearby communities.”
Member for Penrith, Stuart Ayres said widening Mulgoa Road is part of the long-term economic plan for Penrith.
“We are planning and investing for the growth that will happen in Penrith rather than waiting for problems to arise like Labor did,” Mr Ayres said.
“Everyone knows Mulgoa Road needs to be widened to six lanes and we are getting on with doing it.”
Minister for Metropolitan Roads Natalie Ward said that the Mulgoa Road upgrade project is vital to ensure we keep Western Sydney moving forward.
“Western Sydney is the engine room of the NSW economy, which is why we are committing to key local road upgrades so the region can continue to grow and thrive,” Mrs Ward said.
“The Liberal and Nationals Government is backing Western Sydney communities by making their local roads safer and getting tradies, truckies and families to where they need to go quicker.”
Funding for projects such as Mulgoa Road are only possible when the budget is well managed. It is the NSW Liberals and Nationals long-term economic plan that will continue to deliver for Western Sydney and most importantly, keep NSW moving forward.
Key benefits to the community include:
- Increasing capacity to cater for population and employment growth
- Reducing travel times and congestion
- Improving road safety for all users
- Improving active transport
