Local motorists travelling along Camden Valley Way are getting home sooner and safer following the completion of the Grahams Hill Road and Richardson Road intersection upgrades.
This project included widening Camden Valley Way, Grahams Hill Road and Richardson Road, lengthening the existing right-turn lanes from Camden Valley Way into Richardson Road and Grahams Hill Road, upgrading pedestrian ramps and other traffic improvements.
The $4 million upgrades were funded by the federal government under the $200 million local roads package that is part of the Western Sydney infrastructure plan.
Federal Member for Hume Angus Taylor joined Camden Mayor Peter Sidgreaves this morning to officially open the intersection upgrades.
Mr Taylor said the improvements were part of the Camden to Narellan corridor upgrade, which included a number of separate projects.
“This gateway intersection linking Camden and Narellan is one of the busiest in the area. Regular motorists through here, and I include myself among them, have already noticed the smoother traffic flows along Camden Valley Way,’’ he said.
“We are determined to be funding and finishing these infrastructure improvements, to make it easier and safer for motorists to get where they need to go.”
Cr Sidgreaves said the completion of the project had significantly boosted safety for residents.
“I thank both the Australian and State governments for their contributions to our road network. They go a long way in improving local transport connections for our community and supporting our population growth.”
