More funding on the way to improve Silverdale Road

Wednesday, 20 April 2022

Federal Member for Hume Angus Taylor has welcomed further funding for upgrades and safety improvements to Silverdale Road. 
Over $6 million ($6,016,840) has been allocated to Silverdale Road under Round 4 of the Federal Government’s $200 million Local Roads Package (LRP).  
The project will undertake further improvements on a 6.7 km section of Silverdale Road between Taylors Road and the Nepean River Bridge. 
“This additional funding is on top of the $8 million previously provided by the Federal Government under Round 3 of the LRP for scoping and initial improvements undertaken by Wollondilly Shire Council on this stretch of Silverdale Road,” Mr Taylor said. 
“Works to be carried out with the additional $6 million will include road widening from Marsh Road to Warradale Road, safety improvements at Ridgehaven Road intersection and road re-surfacing north of Farnsworth Avenue intersection. 
“I have heard loud and clear community concern about Silverdale Road keeping up with demand as the area grows, and I will continue to deliver investment in this road and other local roads around Wollondilly.” 
This phase of the project is currently in planning stages and completion is expected by January 2024.
