Henry Lawson Drive Upgrade Stage 1A


Project overview

The NSW Government is upgrading Henry Lawson Drive to reduce congestion and improve safety and connectivity.

The upgrade is being carried out in stages to minimise impact to road users, with Stage 1A spanning from Auld Avenue to just north of Tower Road.

Once complete, Stage 1A will provide more capacity for vehicles travelling through the intersection of Henry Lawson Drive, Milperra Road and Newbridge Road. It will improve efficiency along the corridor and safety for motorists and pedestrians.

Project information


In February 2020, Transport for NSW called for public comment on Stage 1A of a plan to upgrade the 7.5 kilometre length of Henry Lawson Drive between the M5 South Western Motorway, Milperra, and Hume Highway, Lansdowne.

The upgrade would help ensure the road corridor can meet growing demand, with residential, commercial and industrial development expected to increase in the coming years.

There were around 80 submissions from the public and their comments, along with Transport for NSW responses, were published in the July 2020 consultation report (PDF, 861Kb).


Stage 1A upgrades will:

  • provide two lanes in each direction on Henry Lawson Drive between Auld Avenue and Tower Road
  • upgrade the intersection of Henry Lawson Drive, Milperra Road and Newbridge Road to provide:
    • an additional southbound lane
    • Longer dual right turns for motorists turning right from Milperra Road into Henry Lawson Drive
    • an upgraded left turn for motorists turning left from Newbridge Road into Henry Lawson Drive
    • longer dual right turn lanes for motorists turning right from Henry Lawson Drive into Newbridge Road
  • upgrade the intersection of Henry Lawson Drive and Tower Road to include a dual right turn from Henry Lawson Drive onto Tower Road.

Next steps

The project is now in construction and is due to finish in early 2026.
