This project involves the investigation into both short-term and long-term options to address congestion on Richmond Bridge and its approach roads and two intersection improvements on the approaches to Richmond Bridge:
- Bells Line of Road/Grose Vale Road/Terrace Road
- Kurrajong Road/Old Kurrajong Road/Yarramundi Lane
The study informed short-term and long-term options to resolve congestion issues and improve traffic flow in the area.
The intersection upgrades will improve the major east-west movement of traffic on Bells Line of Road and Kurrajong Road for the short to medium term.
The total estimated cost of the project is $24.8 million. This is funded through $20 million from the Australian Government, $2.05 million from developer contributions, $2 million from the NSW Government and $1.55 million from interest.
The study was carried out in two stages. Stage 1 investigations into options for short-term improvements were undertaken by Hyder Consulting and Stage 2 investigations into options for longer-term improvements were undertaken by SMEC. The final report, which includes a recommendation to reserve a road corridor for a future upgrade of Richmond Bridge, was released to the public on 31 July 2013.
Construction of the intersection improvements commenced in early 2015 and is expected to be completed in mid-2019.
