The project will address the traffic congestion issue due to the large volume of vehicles turning right onto the Great Western Highway from Castlereagh Road, by amplifying the existing road network.
The project will improve traffic flow by removing the traffic bottleneck at the Mulgoa Road/High Street intersection.
The Australian Government has committed $72.5 million towards the project.
Work started in December 2018 and the upgrade will open to traffic in mid 2021.
