Work has started on a major upgrade to the intersections of Spitfire Drive and Eagle Vale Drive on Raby Rd.

The $7million project is funded by the Federal Government’s Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan which aims to support population growth and access across the region.

Features of the upgrade include:

  • Replacement of the Eagle Vale Drive/Raby Rd roundabout with traffic lights
  • New traffic lights at the intersection of Raby Rd and Spitfire Drive.
  • Construction of a new shared pathway for pedestrians and cyclists
  • New slip lanes for Eagle Vale Drive to Raby Rd (north) and Raby Rd to Eagle Vale Drive (west)
  • Extending the retaining wall along Raby Rd
  • Landscaping and tree planting on the corner of Eagle Vale Drive and Raby Rd

Mayor George Brticevic said Raby Rd is a major arterial connection to the Hume Highway for residents from Campbelltown and the wider Macarthur region.

“These upgrades will ensure more efficient and safer traffic flow on a road which has become an important connection for many people across the region travelling to work via the Hume Highway,” Cr Brticevic said.

“This upgrade is another step in ensuring our local road network assists with access into and across our city and the greater Macarthur region providing improved connection to the health, education and commercial services we have to offer,” he said.

“New tree plantings on the corner of Raby Rd and Eagle Vale Drive will also enhance the visual appeal of the area and reflect the pride residents have in their local community.”

The upgrades were identified as part of a traffic, safety and scoping study conducted by Council for the Raby Rd precinct which was also funded by the Local Roads Package and responds to feedback received by Council from the community about traffic congestion in key connections across the City.

The upgrades are scheduled for completion by December next year.
