Contractor completes $76M Campbelltown Road upgrade

A section of Campbelltown Road in the Macarthur region of NSW has reopened following 76 million worth of upgrades.

Burton Contractors completed the road upgrades which were funded by the state government to deliver better road infrastructure and support housing growth in the Macarthur region.

A Transport for NSW spokesperson said the upgrade will be fantastic news for the thousands of motorists who travel along Campbelltown Road each day.

“This upgraded stretch of Campbelltown Road has increased capacity for expected future traffic growth and will improve travel times for all users,” the spokesperson said.

Around 94,000 man hours of work has been carried out since July 2018 to widen a section of the busy road to two lanes in each direction.

“Three key intersections have also been upgraded, with traffic lights installed at the intersections with new MacDonald Road, Soldiers Parade and East Town Centre Road which will improve safety for road users,” the spokesperson said.

Alongside this a shared pedestrian and cyclist path has also been built.

The funding was provided by the NSW Government as part of the Housing Acceleration Fund which provides infrastructure such as roads, transport, water and electricity to accelerate housing supply.

Upgrades to Campbelltown Road are expected to support the accelerated delivery of up to 6000 new homes in edmondson Park and 14,000 across the wider South West Growth Area.

“As more land for housing is released, the NSW Government is ensuring all roads and public transport can provide connectivity for these new communities,” the spokesperson said.
