Nov 2020 – Have your say
Transport for NSW sought feedback in November and December 2020 on the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) for the Richmond Road north of Elara Boulevard upgrade.
To ensure the health and safety of the community and our staff we replaced face to face community information sessions with online information sessions on the NSW Roads Facebook page where you can watch the recording of this session or view the video on this page.

Transport for NSW completed the four lane upgrade of Richmond Road between M7 Motorway and Garfield Road West in 2016. The next stage of work on Richmond Road north of Elara Boulevard for about 1.5km, is currently being planned to meet the current and projected traffic volumes.
Richmond Road provides an important north-south link through an area of north-west Sydney which is set to undergo significant land-use and transport changes, including rapid population and employment growth over the next 20 years and beyond.
Transport for NSW is proposing to continue the Richmond Road upgrade from north Elara Boulevarde of for about 1.5km. The upgrade would provide safer and improved access to fast growing residential developments in the Marsden Park precinct and future commercial and residential developments in Marsden Park North precinct.
The benefits of the Richmond Road upgrade would include:
- signalised intersections providing safer conditions for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians
- an improved connection between the Marsden Park and Blacktown
- enhanced facilities for active transport
- better drainage.
For Richmond Road four lane upgrade north of Elara:
- Widening 900 metres of Richmond Road from two lanes to four lanes (two lanes in each direction)
- wide central median for future widening of the road to six lanes, if needed
- new traffic lights 800 metres north west of Elara Boulevard.
- provide bus bays and bus priority lanes at the main intersection.
Transport for NSW is continuing planning and field investigation work to prepare the strategic design for the six lane upgrade of Richmond Road between M7 to Townson Road.
