ENDING OUR TRAFFIC CHAOS
An Albanese Labor Government will end the traffic chaos in Austral and Middleton Grange, allowing locals to spend more time and home and less time stuck in traffic.
Currently, some locals only have one road in and out of their neighbourhood, while Cowpasture Road provides the only opportunity to cross the M7 and head north. With the population continuing to grow, congestion is only going to get worse and worse.
That’s why an Albanese Labor Government will invest $6 million to partner with the City of Liverpool to build a new road and shared path link between Aviation Road and Middleton Drive, providing a new crossing of the M7 and a new connection between this growing suburb and jobs, shops and opportunities in other neighbouring suburbs.
After a decade of Liberal Government neglect, only an Albanese Labor Government will invest in the infrastructure needs of Sydney’s Southwestern suburbs.
Attributable to Catherine King, Shadow Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development:
“Whenever I speak to Anne I hear about the congestion problems in this part of Sydney and I hear about the neglect under the Morrison Government.
“Labor’s infrastructure investments are about giving locals a better future, allowing them to spend more time at home and less on the road.
“That is exactly what this investment will do.”
Attributable to Anne Stanley, Member for Werriwa:
“Residents in new and emerging areas of Werriwa experience the lack of infrastructure funding every day as they sit in traffic trying to get to work or school or to get home in the evening.
“The residents of Austral and Middleton Grange deserve roads capable of carrying the levels of traffic that have come as the areas have developed.
“Labor’s investment in our community will allow much needed development of the roads we need so that people can enjoy the benefits of living in new areas without extra hours each week trying to get to work or get home.
“This is a huge win for our community”.
