The Northern Road Upgrade Stage 4
Stage 4 is about 11km between Mersey Road, Bringelly and Littlefields Road, Luddenham. This important stage would divert The Northern Road around the western Sydney airport site at Badgerys Creek, west of the existing road.
Route to be confirmed
The road design in this area will be refined when the alignment of the M12 is confirmed. Further details will be provided as part of future community consultation later in 2016. Included in this area is a possible future intersection with the M12 Motorway, location to be confirmed.
M12 Motorway study area
There is a possible future interchange with the M12 Motorway, with the location to be confirmed.
Proposed western Sydney airport
The Australian Government has announced that Badgerys Creek will be the site for a western Sydney airport. This demonstrates the Government's commitment to the western Sydney region, where a new airport would be a major catalyst for investment and jobs growth. An airport in western Sydney would also bring benefits to the Australian economy more broadly.
A new road is needed to bypass the airport site with the existing The Northern Road alignment no longer able to pass through this area.
