Western Sydney will be given a $1.3 million infrastructure boost with the Morrison Government unlocking funds toward planning for upgrades to Homebush Bay Drive. Part of the Urban Congestion Fund, the project will remove local bottlenecks and deliver a more reliable road network for commuters and freight.
It’s expected about 210 local jobs will be supported across the entire, $100 million project.
Federal Member for Reid Fiona Martin said the Homebush Bay Drive project would improve road safety and traffic flow, resulting in easier access to Sydney Olympic Park and Wentworth Point. “The traffic caused at this intersection has been one of the biggest infrastructure issues for our community over the last twenty years,” Dr Martin said.“The approved funding gives the green light to scoping works and investigations to start as part of project planning.”
