Project Description

Local Roads Package

The Australian Government, in partnership with the New South Wales (NSW) Government, has announced a ten-year road investment programme of over $3.6 billion for western Sydney.  This programme includes a $200 million funding package for upgrades to locally important roads, and is part of the Australian Government’s plan to build the infrastructure of the 21st century and grow the NSW economy.

The Local Roads Package will enable the Australian Government to fund a range of works that will improve local transport connections and support the communities of western Sydney around the airport.  This package will fund a range of road upgrades which would have the greatest benefits for local communities by increasing safety and improving traffic flows.
