Henry Lawson Drive Upgrade Stage 1B


Project overview

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

The NSW Government is upgrading Henry Lawson Drive to improve efficiency along the corridor and boost safety for motorists and pedestrians. As part of the wider program to upgrade Henry Lawson Drive, Stage 1B will provide two lanes in each direction between Auld Avenue and the M5 Motorway. The Georges Hall upgrade, between Beale Street and just south of Rabaul Road, was completed earlier this year and the Stage 1A upgrade, between Tower Road and Auld Avenue, is currently under construction.

The consultation period for the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) has now ended.

The submissions report with responses to submissions will be made available in early 2024. We will contact those who made a submission when the report is published.

Henry Lawson Drive Upgrade Stage 1B in Milperra spans approximately a 1.8 kilometre section of Henry Lawson Drive between Auld Avenue to the north and the approach to the M5 Motorway to the south. In June 2021 the NSW Government committed $22.5 million for the planning and design of the Henry Lawson Drive upgrade in Milperra between Auld Avenue and the M5 Motorway.

The upgrade consists of widening Henry Lawson Drive to four lanes, a road that would link Auld Avenue with Keys Parade, a road that would link Raleigh Road with Keys Parade, upgrades at intersections, and improved active transport connectivity along the corridor.
