Bourke Street is currently classified as an RMS regional road, however the Glenfield Road corridor has become a de-facto regional road, as it provides efficient access to the northern growth area, Bomen industrial area and Charles Sturt University.
Transferring the status of a regional road from Bourke Street to Glenfield Road will improve the operation and efficiency of Bourke Street for local traffic, cyclists and pedestrians. Further, the change of road classification of Glenfield Road supports the project for duplication of the Glenfield Road corridor.
Significant works are also required along the corridor including reconstruction of existing travelling lanes, additional lanes, major intersection treatments, duplication of existing rail overpass, major box culvert installation (required to allow for road and bridge works) and concrete drainage channel.
The State Government transfer Glenfield Road to become a regional road instead of Bourke Street.
The State and/or Federal Government provide significant funding contributions towards each stage of constructions of this project.
