Project Description

This project upgraded Kent Road and Gipps Street to a four-lane dual carriageway linking the Great Western Highway and the M4 Motorway with east-facing entry and exit ramps on the M4. This project upgraded four existing intersections on Caddens Road, Sunflower Drive South, Sunflower Drive North and the Great Western Highway.


The project delivered a range of benefits, including:

  • providing additional north-south road capacity for the growing population of Western Sydney, relieving congestion in existing corridors such as The Northern Road and Mamre Road
  • improving access for freight from the St Marys industrial areas to the M4 Motorway and Great Western Highway
  • providing infrastructure for bus services
  • providing shared off-road pedestrian and cycle facilities.


The total cost of the project was $51.8 million.


The construction contract was awarded to Burton Contractors Pty Limited on 21 January 2015. Construction commenced in 9 March 2015. The project was completed in May 2017.
