Memorial Avenue Upgrade At Kellyville Moves To Next Stage

The major upgrade of Memorial Avenue at Kellyville is moving ahead with planning approval now in place and detailed design to start.

“The planned widening of Memorial Avenue to a four lane divided road between Old Windsor Road and Windsor Road at Kellyville aims to improve travel for all road users in Sydney’s North West,” Baulkham Hills State Liberal MP David Elliott said.

“The NSW Government committed $1 million this financial year to progress plans for the upgrade which will reduce congestion and improve safety as developments in the area increase.

“We thank community members who took the time to provide feedback to the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) and concept design last year.

“A submissions report is now online responding to key issues important to the community.

“Detailed design set to start in coming weeks will highlight how two kilometres of Memorial Avenue will be widened between Windsor Road and Old Windsor Road at Kellyville to a four-lane divided road with a wide central median.

“Pedestrian safety will be improved with new traffic lights to be installed at two intersections, twin bridges installed over Strangers Creek, a shared path for pedestrians and cyclists and bus priority at traffic lights.

“Roads and Maritime will continue to keep the community informed as the project progresses,” Mr Elliott said.

Community members are invited to view a submissions report now online for the project at www.rms.nsw.gov.au/roadprojects.
