The construction of the bridge over the Hume Motorway has progressed to the next stage with bridge girders now being installed as part of Spring Farm Parkway Stage 1.
The $206 million project will feature a new road and north facing on and off ramps at the Hume Motorway to link into future and existing communities south of Campbelltown and Narellan.
“The project will deliver traffic benefits for our community in Campbelltown with around 12,000 vehicles per day expected to the use bridge, and we are looking to the future by planning for stage 2 of the project,” Member for Campbelltown, Greg Warren said.
The Stage 1 work has seen significant engineering with 1300 cubic meters of concrete being poured, along with 350,000 cubic meters of soil being imported in the process.
This is an exciting development as the bridge is the single biggest item of infrastructure needed for the new road and will become a dual lane carriageway road and provide access from the Hume Motorway and into communities around Menangle Park, south of Campbelltown.
“This is an exciting project that will have huge local benefits for the people of Camden and it’s great to see this project continue its construction,” Member for Camden, Sally Quinnell said.
Planning for Spring Farm Parkway Stage 2 is also underway with $4 million allocated in the NSW Budget.
The Parkway will ultimately provide a connection between Camden Bypass, the Hume Motorway and Menangle Road to provide an east-west link that would support the Greater Macarthur area’s growing population and existing and future residential and industrial developments.
Girder installation is expected to be completed by early December, weather permitting.
