Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

THE pre­ferred de­sign for the M4 East tun­nels, the first un­der­ground stage of West-Con­nex run­ning un­der Par­ra­matta Rd, has been re­leased.

WestCon­nex De­liv­ery Au­thor­ity chief ex­ec­u­tive Dennis Cliche said ben­e­fits for Mt Druitt and St Marys res­i­dents would in­clude re­mov­ing traf­fic pinch points.

“Work is al­ready un­der­way on widen­ing the M4 be­tween Par­ra­matta and Home­bush from three to four lanes in each di­rec­tion,” Mr Cliche said.

“This work will re­move the no­to­ri­ous pinch point around James Ruse Drive and will also in­clude ramp up­grades, such as new di­rect ac­cess from Home­bush Bay Drive to the M4 west­bound.”
