Have your say on Elizabeth Drive upgrade
16 March 2020
Planning is progressing for the proposed upgrade of Elizabeth Drive, with the community now invited to have their say on the strategic design and alignment.
Mrs Davies said the proposed upgrade of the key road corridor would help to support the new Western Sydney International Airport and future Western Parkland City.
“The NSW Government is planning ahead for the expected growth in Greater Sydney, with more than five million people already living in the region,” Mrs Davies said.
“The proposed upgrade of the Elizabeth Drive between the M7 Motorway at Cecil Hills and The Northern Road at Luddenham would further support the predicted growth in region by providing two lanes in each direction.”
Mr Sidgreaves said the display of the strategic design and alignment will give the community and other stakeholders a chance to provide key local knowledge.
“The strategic design identifies where future road widening may be carried out as well as where future intersections would be and what they would look like so it is important the local community has their say,” Mr Sidgreaves said.
“The proposed upgrade would also provide a shared path for pedestrians and cyclists as well as infrastructure for bus services.
“The upgrade would not only increase road capacity but also improve safety for motorists while providing improved access to the Western Sydney International Airport and future Western Parkland City.”
The community is invited to attend drop-in sessions at Kemps Creek Public School on Wednesday 25 and Saturday 28 March to speak with the project team, provide feedback and learn more about the proposal.
Feedback on the proposed upgrade is invited until Thursday 9 April and will be considered before finalising the proposal.
Comments on the proposed upgrade can be provided by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to Elizabeth Drive upgrade, Transport for NSW, PO Box 973, Parramatta NSW 2124.
