Dec 2022 - Consultation report released

We have prepared and published a report online detailing public comment on the project and our response.

Transport undertook a consultation and engagement program on the recommended design from 9 December 2020 to 15 February 2021 and invited stakeholders and the community to review and comment on the proposal through a formal submission process.

Thank you to all those who have made a submission on the recommended design for the upgrade.

We have summarised all the feedback and responses in a Consultation Report which we encourage you to view here (PDF, 3.82Mb).

All feedback is being considered by the project team as the design and further assessment of the proposal is progressed.

We will continue to keep the community up-to-date as the project progresses.

Project information


Western Sydney is Australia's third largest economy and the population is expected to grow from two million to three million people over the next 20 years. The NSW Government is planning for this growth by planning for transport corridors to serve future residential and employment lands.

Cambridge Avenue is an important future transport corridor providing access to the Moorebank Logistics Park, the Western Sydney Employment Area, Badgerys Creek Airport, and the South West Growth Centre.

Transport for NSW has developed a recommended option for the proposal.


Transport for NSW has identified a design to link Moorebank Logistics Park and the Hume Motorway to improve access.

The recommended design would involve duplication and extension of Cambridge Avenue westward from Moorebank Avenue to Campbelltown Road including:

  • four lanes between Moorebank Logistics Park and Canterbury Road
  • extending of Cambridge Avenue as a dual-carriageway with provision for up to six-lanes between Glenfield Road and Campbelltown Road
  • an improved M31 Hume Motorway and Campbelltown Road interchange access which would enable motorists travelling:
    • north on the Hume Motorway to exit to Campbelltown Road
    • on Campbelltown Road to join the M31 Hume Motorway to take either M5 eastbound or M7 northbound
    • south on the M7 Motorway to exit to Campbelltown Road.
  • Campbelltown Road would also be upgraded between Ingleburn Gardens Drive and Parkers Farm Place.
  • new bridge over the Main South and East Hills rail lines and the Southern Sydney Freight Line at Glenfield
  • New bridge over Georges River with flood immunity for 1 in 100 year flood
  • new bridge over the East Hills Rail Line at Moorebank
  • new bridge over the Hume Motorway on Campbelltown Road.

Moorebank Intermodal Terminal Road Access Strategy

Transport for NSW has developed the Moorebank Intermodal Terminal Road Access (MITRA) Strategy to address increasing traffic and freight movements in the Liverpool - Moorebank area over the next 10-20 years. The strategy has identified road infrastructure improvements to meet the forecast growth of Liverpool CBD and regional traffic, together with construction of the Moorebank Logistics Park. The facility will generate over 6,600 heavy vehicle trips and 10,000 light vehicle trips per day.

The proposal to upgrade Cambridge Avenue is one of the road infrastructure improvements identified in the MITRA strategy.


Recommended design

The recommended design would:

  • provide a reliable road network to support economic and residential growth in western Sydney
  • reduce congestion in the wider Sydney road network
  • provide efficient, reliable travel between the Moorebank Logistics Park and the state road network
  • support the M5 Motorway as the key gateway for south‑west Sydney
  • improve flood resilience across the Georges River.

Property Acquisition

As the project progresses, there will be a need for Transport to acquire some properties. These may be full or partial property acquisitions.

A Transport Personal Manager Acquisitions will speak directly with any potentially affected property owners and continue to be in contact as the project progresses.

More information about the property acquisition process is available at Property Acquisition NSW

What happens next?

Our initial response to the issues raised is provided in the consultation report.

We continue to consider the concerns and suggestions raised by the community in submissions on the recommended design and are continuing to develop the project by preparing a concept design to identify the preferred option, and an environmental assessment of the preferred option, by preparing a Review of Environmental Factors (REF) under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (EP&A Act).

The preferred option and REF will be exhibited for comment before a decision is made whether to approve the project in accordance with the EP&A Act and proceed to implementation.

We will continue to keep community members and stakeholders informed of the progress.
