Western Sydney drivers will soon see shovels in the ground on more than $300 Million worth of road upgrades to ease congestion and improve safety along major arterial roads in Prospect and Kellyville.

Road Duplications:

New South Wales Liberals & Nationals Government today announced it will duplicate:

  • Prospect Highway between Reservoir Road at Prospect and St. Martins Crescent at Blacktown,
  • Memorial Avenue between Old Windsor Road and Windsor Road at Kellyville.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said work on the 2 major upgrades is now underway with the Government to start procurement on both projects immediately and construction to begin this year.

Prospect Highway

“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.” Premier Berejiklian said.

“Once complete the upgraded 3-km section of the Prospect Highway will be widened to a 4-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 New South Wales Liberals & Nationals Government is also building for future generations by upgrading Memorial Avenue in Kellyville.

Memorial Avenue

“On Memorial Avenue work will be carried out to upgrade the existing 2.2-km road to a 4-lane divided road, with shared pedestrian and cyclist paths to be built on both sides of the road.” Minister Ayres said.

“This investment in Prospect Highway and Memorial Avenue will allow people to spend less time in traffic and more time at home and it is only being delivered because of the strong economic management of the New South Wales Liberals & Nationals.”

“Duplication of the Prospect Highway will make a huge difference to the lives of drivers who travel along this major road corridor each day.” Mr. Taylor said.

“Upgrade of Memorial Avenue is a crucial project for the future of Kellyville and I can’t wait to see construction underway.” Minister Elliott said.
