Norwest Boulevard, Bella Vista
The NSW Government is investing $3.3 million through the Housing Acceleration Fund to plan for an intersection upgrade at Norwest Boulevard, Lexington Drive and Elizabeth MacArthur Drive, Bella Vista to ease congestion and improve traffic flow along Norwest Boulevard and support and accelerate housing development in the area.
Nov 2021 - Community update
We have considered all the submissions received from the local community and stakeholders on our proposal to improve the intersection at Norwest Boulevard, Lexington Drive and Elizabeth MacArthur Drive, Bella Vista. We are currently working through the proposal and will prepare a Submissions Report. We will advise the community when the report is ready to access.
Norwest Boulevard in Bella Vista is a pivotal travel route between the M7 and Castle Hill and provides access to the Norwest Business Park.
However, during morning and evening peak periods the road is heavily congested, causing long delays for road users.
In 2017, vehicle activated traffic lights were introduced at the Norwest Boulevard, Lexington Drive and Elizabeth MacArthur Drive intersection to help ease congestion during the peak period.
While this work has improved journey reliability and travel times, this upgrade was only a short term solution while we investigated long term options.
We are now investigating options to further upgrade the Norwest Boulevard, Lexington Drive and Elizabeth MacArthur Drive intersection in Bella Vista.
The project will:
- improve traffic flow and reduce congestion, especially during the AM and PM peak periods
- support housing development by providing extra capacity to meet future traffic demand
- improve road safety for all road users
- improve access and safety for cyclists and pedestrians
- support the movement and access needs of public transport.
