The Australian Government is committing $1.9 billion towards 14 new infrastructure projects and additional funding for existing projects in Western Sydney, New South Wales.

The Federal Government is committing $1.9 billion towards 14 new projects and providing additional funding for two existing projects.

The new investments include construction projects, as well as planning projects, including:

  • Mamre Road Stage 2 Upgrade
  • Elizabeth Drive – Priority Sections Upgrade
  • Garfield Road East Upgrade
  • Memorial Avenue Upgrade
  • Appin Road – St Johns Road Intersection Upgrade

Key project funding detail includes:

  • The new $500 million federal investment in Mamre Road Stage 2 will add to the $253.6 million already allocated by the NSW Government for Stage 1 of the project.
  • A $400 million federal investment to deliver priority sections of Elizabeth Drive upgrade. This builds on the NSW Government’s $200 million commitment for Elizabeth Drive safety and enabling works.
  • A further $115 million federal government commitment for Mulgoa Road Stage 2 will allow the NSW Government to move ahead with upgrades to the pinch point.
  • The new $500 million federal investment for Richmond Road, Garfield Road and Memorial Avenue will support the NSW Government’s existing $385 million commitment.
  • A $100 million federal investment to deliver new infrastructure to support bus services to the WSI airport.
  • A $20 million federal investment to support the delivery of the final business case for Stage 1 of the Western Sydney Freight Line.

The Government will invest $147.5 million for planning for roads and rail across greater Western Sydney to ensure that road infrastructure can keep pace with a growing population.

$20 million will be invested to partner with the NSW Government to expand the scope of the South West Sydney Rail Planning – Business Case to include consideration of extending the line to the Macarthur region.

The new investment takes that total to $17.3 billion. There will be more to say at Budget time about further investments for NSW.
