The community is reminded to have a say on early plans to upgrade Memorial Avenue at Kellyville to improve safety and meet future traffic demand in Sydney’s north west.
“Roads and Maritime Services proposes to widen Memorial Avenue to a four lane divided road, between Old Windsor and Windsor roads at Kellyville,” Member for Baulkham Hills David Elliott said.
“The upgrade aims to support significant growth in traffic expected in the area due to increased residential and commercial developments such as the Balmoral Road release area precinct.
“The 2.2 kilometre road would connect Old Windsor Road in the west with Windsor Road and provides vital access to Blacktown, Glenwood, Stanhope Gardens, Parklea, Baulkham Hills, Castle Hill and Kellyville.
“Safety would be improved for all road users with the installation of traffic lights, a central median to separate traffic and an off-road shared path for pedestrians and cyclists on both sides of Memorial Avenue.
“Community members are invited to attend information sessions at Wrights Road Community Centre, corner ofHarrington AvenueandWrights Roadat Kellyville, on Thursday 12 December between 2pm and 6pm.
“The early proposal will be on display on the Roads and Maritime website for comment until Friday 31 January and at The Hills Shire Council offices on Showground Road and Castle Hill Library, corner Castle and Pennant streets at Castle Hill until Friday 13 December.
“From 15 December the display will be on display at council’s new office at 3 Columbia Court, Baulkham Hills until 31 January.
“Written feedback is invited by Friday 31 January to The Memorial Avenue Upgrade Project Team, Sydney Development Section, Roads and Maritime Services,PO Box 973,Parramatta NSW 2124 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“All written comments received will be considered in the environmental assessment and development of the proposal,” Mr Elliott said.
