Mulgoa Road upgrade motoring ahead

NSW Gov

A major upgrade of Mulgoa Road is motoring ahead with the contract awarded to Seymour Whyte Constructions and Turnbull Engineering.

Minister for Metropolitan Roads Natalie Ward said the milestone would allow work to begin between Jeanette Street and Blaikie Road at Jamisontown.

“Mulgoa Road is already one of Western Sydney’s key arterial routes with 52,000 car movements every day, which is why we’re making these important upgrades to ensure it keeps pace with the region’s growth,” Mrs Ward said.

“This is yet another example of the NSW Government delivering on its vision for a brighter future for people right across NSW and building the world-class infrastructure they deserve.”

Member for Penrith Stuart Ayres said the upgrade would support the future economic growth of the region through an improved connection to the M4 Motorway and increased productivity.

“Mulgoa Road will be widened from two to three lanes in either direction which will ease congestion along with upgraded intersections, including at the M4 Motorway,” Mr Ayres said.

“I’m excited to see early works begin with the appointment of a contractor, ahead of major work next year.”

Member for Mulgoa Tanya Davies said the entire community would benefit from the project.

“In addition, the upgrade will include bus priority works around intersections, new landscaping, upgraded paths and a noise barrier,” Ms Davies said.

“Three sections of Mulgoa Road are also progressing to a final design; around 850m between Glenmore Parkway and Jeanette Street, about 1.2km between Blaikie Road and Jamison Road and a further km between Jamison and Union Roads.”

The Mulgoa Road upgrade is jointly funded by the NSW and Federal Governments and is part of a wider plan to improve important connectivity across the Penrith area.

This project complements work the NSW Government has undertaken around the Jane Street intersection and the upgrades completed along The Northern Road.
