Thank you for your feedback.

Penrith residents and regular users of Dunheved Road can look forward to more efficient, reliable and safer journeys with consultation for the $128 million upgrade now complete. Planning is progressing, and construction is expected to start early 2024.

The upgrade will see the heavily congested 4-kilometre route between Richmond Road and the Werrington Road/Christie Street roundabout upgraded from a two-lane undivided road to a median separated, four-lane carriageway with a shared user path.There will be three new signalised intersections, three new roundabouts, and upgrades to existing intersections.

The project has been through several changes and refinements with community, stakeholder and technical input. The final design for the upgrade addresses the current congestion, traffic and safety issues on Dunheved Road and will ensure the road can cater for future traffic demands.

Consultation update

Following consultation for the concept design and the Review of Environmental Factors (REF), Council is pleased to have been able to accommodate a number of changes to the final design:

  • Right turn lane into Trinity Drive for westbound motorists.
  • New signalised intersection at Tasman Street.
  • Removal of previously proposed traffic signals at John Oxley Avenue. The intersection of John Oxley Avenue and Dunheved Road is now a priority intersection with westbound left in/left out and eastbound right turn into John Oxley Avenue. No right turn out of John Oxley Avenue, with motorists, advised to use Francis Street or the intersection of Werrington Road and Parkes Avenue.
  • Noise treatments for eligible properties backing onto the road corridor based on future noise modelling assessments conducted as part of the REF.

Further information is available in the REF which is located in the Document Library.
