Final stage of $71m road upgrade nearing completion


Completion of the Hoxton Park Road upgrade in Sydney’s south-west a step closer, Minister says

The completion of the Hoxton Park Road upgrade in Sydney’s south-west is a step closer, New South Wales Minister for Roads Michael Daley announced yesterday.

The final stage of the project, which costs $71 million dollars and will include the construction of twin bridges over Hinchinbrook Creek and a service road between First Avenue and Whitford and Illaroo Roads, will be completed by early 2011.

The road, which runs through key industrial areas, is being widened from two lanes to four to better accommodate the 32,000 vehicles which travel along the stretch each day.

Daley says the upgrades will benefit truckies using the road.

"[The upgrade] will help increase road safety and reduce congestion, saving motorists time by improving the flow of traffic," he says.
