Works kick off to widen Hawkesbury Road, Westmead

28 August 2019

Works begin this week along Hawkesbury Road, between Darcy Road and Jessie Street in Westmead, in preparation for major Parramatta Light Rail construction.

Transport for NSW and Westmead Redevelopment are working together to deliver the essential road widening works needed to support the growth of Westmead and to meet growing travel demand.

The widening of Hawkesbury Road will create room for one lane of traffic on each side of the new dual-track Parramatta Light Rail. Construction works will include:

  • Relocation of utilities and parking
  • Removal of roundabouts, median strips and median kerbs
  • New footpath, street lighting and landscaping
  • Footpath improvements
  • Trimming or removal of some trees, and planting of new trees
