NOV 2020Have your say

Transport for NSW sought feedback in November and December 2020 on the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) for the Richmond Road upgrade. To ensure the health and safety of the community and our staff we replaced face to face community information sessions with online information sessions on the NSW Roads Facebook page where you can watch the recording of this session or view below.

Thank you to all those who made a submission on the REF we will prepare a report and publish online.

Transport for NSW will continue to provide the community with updates as the project progresses.

Community information

The NSW Government has proposed a road network to support the forecast growth in the North West Growth Area. Once fully developed, the area will be home to around 250,000 people.

Richmond Road has been upgraded from two lanes to four lanes between the M7 Motorway and Elara Boulevard.

Transport for NSW is proposing to continue the Richmond Road upgrade from north of for about 1.5km. The upgrade would provide safer and improved access to fast growing residential developments in the Marsden Park precinct and future commercial and residential developments in Marsden Park North precinct.

Project information

Transport for NSW completed the upgrade of Richmond Road between M7 Motorway and Garfield Road West in 2016. The next stage of work on Richmond Road north of Elara Boulevard for about 1.5km, is currently being planned to meet the current and projected traffic volumes.

Richmond Road provides an important north-south link through an area of north-west Sydney set to undergo significant land-use and transport changes, including rapid population and employment growth over the next 20 years and beyond.

  • Widening 900 metres of Richmond Road from two lanes to four lanes (two lanes in each direction).
  • Wide central median for future widening of the road to six lanes, if needed.
  • New traffic lights 800 metres north west of Elara Boulevard.
  • Provide bus bays and bus priority lanes at the main intersection.

The benefits of the Richmond Road upgrade would include:

  • signalised intersections providing safer conditions for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians
  • an improved connection between the Marsden Park and Blacktown
  • enhanced facilities for active transport
  • better drainage

Transport for NSW is continuing planning and field investigation work to prepare the strategic design. Below is an outline of the stages of the project and where we are now.
