Procurement underway for $300M Western Sydney roads boost

The NSW Government is in the procurement process for their $300 million congestion and safety upgrade to Prospect and Kellyville arterials.

Yesterday the NSW Government announced the duplication of Prospect Highway between Reservoir Road and St Martins Crescent and Memorial Avenue between Old Windsor Road and Windsor Road.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the two major upgrades are underway with the Government working on procurement processes immediately with construction to begin this year.

“Around 35,000 vehicles currently use the Prospect Highway each day, including around 5000 heavy vehicles, so it is great to see work will soon start on this important project,” Ms. Berejiklian said.

“Once complete the upgraded three kilometre section of the Prospect Highway will be widened to a four-lane divided road improving safety and travel times. The work will include upgrades to bridges across the M4 and Great Western Highway, and the on and off ramps to the M4.”

Minister for Western Sydney Stuart Ayres said the work on Memorial Avenue upgrade the existing 2.2 kilometre stretch to a four-lane divided road, with shared pedestrian and cyclist paths.

“This investment in Prospect Highway and Memorial Avenue will allow people to spend less time in traffic and more time at home,” Mr. Ayres said.

As the projects are both in the procurement stages, the Government are yet to reveal the cost break down.

The NSW State Government are committing to works beginning late this year and are expected to be complete in 2022.
