The State Government has confirmed $500 million will be included in the upcoming State Budget to allow the next stage of construction to begin on Mamre Road between Erskine Park and Kemps Creek.

With the Federal Government also contributing $500 million, funding for the project has now reached $1 billion.

Mamre Road, a key freight route and zone for commercial development, will be widened with extra lanes to meet future growth, providing upgraded and new intersections and a new shared path for cyclists and pedestrians.

In addition, the State Government has confirmed funding for other road projects associated with Western Sydney International Airport, including $400 million for Elizabeth Drive and $10.5 million for Appin Road.

“The NSW Labor Government is committed to building better roads in Western Sydney, supporting the city’s new international gateway,” said Deputy Premier, Londonderry MP and Minister for Western Sydney, Prue Car.

“The Liberals talked a big game about western Sydney, but when it came to providing for our community, they simply did not deliver, and road projects stalled.

“By investing with the Australian Government, these roadways will service the new Western Sydney International Airport and the surrounding community.”

The State Budget will be handed down later this month.
