Picton Road is an important transport corridor linking the Illawarra Region with Sydney and the Greater MacArthur Growth area and is one of two major east-west links between the M1 Princes Motorway and M31 Hume Motorway.
In November 2020, the NSW Government announced $44 million to plan for an upgrade of Picton Road between the Wilton Growth Area and the M1 Princes Motorway.
In March 2022, the Federal Government also announced an additional $95.6million in funding allocated in the 2022/23 budget for further planning of the Picton bypass and safety upgrades to Picton Road.
An upgrade of Picton Road would support growing communities and businesses across Western Sydney and the Illawarra Shoalhaven by providing improved access to jobs, services, education and suppliers between the neighbouring regions.
Our goal is to help create great places by providing a reliable and safe road network to access high value employment and social amenities so people can live, work and play closer to home.
SEP 2021Community consultation is now closed
We sought feedback from the community, stakeholders, businesses, and transport customers to better understand peoples’ experiences living and travelling in and around Picton Road, including their use of Picton Road between the Wilton Growth Area and the M1 Princes Motorway, including the interchange with the Hume Motorway.More information
Community consultation is now closed.
We will carefully consider all feedback received before proceeding with the project’s development. A community consultation report will be prepared, summarising matters raised and our responses.
