Bells Line of Road - Castlereagh Connection corridor identification

Reviewed

Project overview

Consultation period has now been extended. Feedback will be received until 1 June 2018.

Transport for NSW is consulting on a recommended corridor of land for the Bells Line of Road – Castlereagh Connection for a possible high quality road.

Transport for NSW is now seeking feedback on each of the corridors. The consultation period has been extended, and feedback will be received until 1 June 2018.

Key benefits

This consultation will help to refine the recommended corridor. Once land is identified we need to ensure it is protected from future development so the transport infrastructure can be built when it is needed. Future access would:

  • Provide for improved travel between regional centres west of the Blue Mountains and Sydney’s motorway network to support population and economic growth.
  • Provide an additional access to the Blue Mountains.
  • Create significantly better flood free access for communities in the Hawkesbury area and Penrith Lakes.
  • Provide an alternative to the M4 Motorway, Great Western Highway, Windsor Road and Richmond Road.

Corridor profile

The NSW Government is planning for the long term transport needs of Western Sydney by identifying and protecting a corridor of land for future transport infrastructure.

The Bells Line of Road – Castlereagh Connection corridor would extend about 45km between Bells Line of Road at Kurrajong Heights and the existing motorway network at the Junction of Richmond Road and the M7 Motorway at Colebee.
