Campbelltown extends road to public transport

The State Government is funding a road extension project on Farrow Road through the Local Infrastructure Fund for $5.75 million.

Campbelltown City Council will receive the funds to link the extension with Blaxland Road and the Kraal Drive signalised intersection.

Mayor of Campbelltown Paul Lake said the extension will be an integral point connecting residents west and southwest of Campbelltown with the main public transport centre.

“The extension will also support the projected population growth and urban development,” Mr Lake said.

According to Mr Lake, the extension will establish links catering for current residents and the growth of the city.

Interest free loans for essential infrastructure will be provided to the council through the Local Infrastructure Fund.

Council will repay the loan over a ten year period, which will be serviced through funds collected from Section 94A development contributions.

Key project stages have been proceeding before construction can begin, including an environmental assessment and design elements for road and bridge construction, street lighting and signalised intersection.

It is anticipated to be completed by the end of December.
