Raby Road will soon be upgraded from a two-lane rural road to a four lane, sub-arterial road, with two lanes in each direction.
The upgrade will be between from where Raby Road meets Camden Valley Way in the west to the intersection of Thunderbolt and Epping Forest Drives in the east.
This will take the 2.5 kilometre upgrade into the local government area of Campbelltown.
Concept design work is now under way for an upgrade.
Camden Council recently awarded the contract to civil engineering and infrastructure design consultancy company, Cardno (NSW/ACT) Pty Ltd.
As part of this process, Cardno will also assess and provide concept design for adjustment of driveway access to individual private properties along the route.
The design work will cover intersection treatments on Raby Road at Thunderbolt Drive and Epping Forest Drive, Gledswood Hill Drive and adjacent properties.
Mayor of Camden, Cr Theresa Fedeli, pictured below, said the concept design work for the project was due to be complete early next year.
“Raby Road is a significant east-west link between Camden and Campbelltown City and the areas along the corridor will see growth over the next few years,” Cr Fedeli said.
“We’re currently the fastest growing LGA in the country, welcoming more than 100 new residents every week.
“We want to ensure our residents, now and in the future, have high-quality infrastructure and amenity to happily live, work and play in the Camden area.
“I’d like to thank the NSW Government, for their $2.9 million State Infrastructure Contributions funding to prepare concept and detailed designs for this upgrade.”
The Mayor of Campbelltown, George Brticevic, said the project would ultimately enhance an important connection to the Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport.
“It is imperative that the necessary infrastructure be available for our communities to connect with the jobs and opportunities that living near the aerotropolis will provide,” Mayor George Brticevic said.
