Three additional projects in Camden have been given the green light today with funding committed under Round One of the Local Roads Package for Western Sydney.
Assistant Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development Jamie Briggs said the $200 million Australian Government funded package was part of the $3.6 billion Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan that will unlock the region's economic capacity.
“The Local Roads Package will fund a range of road upgrades such as the installation of traffic lights, roundabouts or additional turning lanes, to relieve congestion for Western Sydney residents.
“We are building the infrastructure that local residents want while slashing travel times and creating jobs in Western Sydney,” Mr Briggs said.
Funding has been approved for the following three projects:
- Argyle St/Camden Valley Way Corridor Upgrade—Stage 1;
- Argyle St/Camden Valley Way Corridor Upgrade—Stage 2; and
- Argyle St/Camden Valley Way Corridor Upgrade—Macarthur Road Intersection.
New South Wales Minister for Roads and Freight Duncan Gay said that together all levels of government were delivering the infrastructure Western Sydney needs to support future growth.
“This collaboration never happened under the previous state and federal Labor governments. It's a new chapter for Western Sydney with greater investment and jobs growth a key priority for the region.
“All of the projects approved for funding under this package have been assessed as having the greatest benefits for local communities,” Mr Gay said.www.infrastructure.gov.au/infrastructure/western_sydney/infrastructure_plan.aspx.
