About the North Kellyville Precinct

Nth Kellyville map image.jpg

Planning

North Kellyville (MAP) is a release area that was planned under the NSW Government’s North West Priority Growth Area Program along with other nearby release areas, including Box Hill.

The area is bound by Smalls Creek to the west, Cattai Creek to the east and north and Samantha Riley Drive to the south.

Typically when a rural site has been identified for possible urban development, Council (or the Department of Planning and Environment in the case of North Kellyville and Box Hill) prepares an Indicative Layout Plan (ILP) and Development Control Plan (DCP). Please visit the Department of Planning and Environment Website for copies of these documents.

These identify where different land uses and facilities (such as Open Space, Community Facilities, Waterways, and Roads and Transport Facilities) will be located.

The planning for North Kellyville was finalised in December 2008 and subsequent planning control amendments will facilitate approximately 7,200 dwellings.

Funding and Construction

In any new release area, the NSW Government is responsible for providing water, sewer, power, major road links and public schools. Developers contribute to these costs through charges levied by the relevant State Government agencies.

The Hills Shire Council has prepared a list of local facilities a new community needs including Parks, Drainage, Playing Fields, Cycleways, Bridges and Local Roads, in accordance with criteria set by the NSW Government. Developers pay a contribution to Council in order to fund this infrastructure.

North Kellyville’s local infrastructure is estimated to cost approximately $266 million. Council is working to progressively acquire land for local facilities (including parks and playing fields), as well as prioritising the rollout of upgrades to the road network.

As development contributions are only collected in small increments as development occurs, it can unfortunately take a substantial amount of time before Council has received sufficient funds to enable certain items (such as a park or road upgrade) to be delivered. Facilities can only be delivered once adequate funds have been received through developer contributions (or other available funding sources), once all necessary land had been acquired, designs have been completed and appropriate approvals are in place.

When delivering infrastructure works, particularly in a rapidly growing urban release area, Council is challenged by many factors including land acquisition processes, statutory requirements, collaboration between multiple approval bodies and funding availability. Council is committed to delivering infrastructure in a timely manner. However, given the magnitude of the infrastructure works required within the precinct, the total rollout of infrastructure has been planned to occur over a 15-20 year development horizon.

The acquisition of land and construction of new facilities is long-term process. Acquiring all land needed to provide new facilities can be challenging, particularly when it involves many individual landowners who may, or may not, be ready to sell.

More facilities will be added to Council’s works program as further development occurs and as additional contributions are paid by developers.

Roads, Cycleways, Bridges and Bus Routes

The Road Hierarchy Explained

A road hierarchy has been developed to adequately service the traffic generation potential of the precinct. The road classifications can range from local access streets, major and minor collector roads, arterials and sub-arterials.

All roads below the level of sub-arterial are usually provided by the developer as part of their subdivision or development consent. The higher order roads, usually sub-arterial up, are included in a Developer Contributions Plan where Council collects contributions from the developer and Council constructs the road.

A residential development area the size of North Kellyville should have a single sub-arterial route to accommodate regional traffic, and Hezlett Road together with Withers Road fulfills this function. There are no arterial (Transport for NSW) routes in North Kellyville.

 

Street Naming

Street naming for all proposed streets identified within the North Kellyville Release Area have been reviewed and approved by The Hills Shire Council and the Geographical Names Board.

Planned Major Road Work 

North Kellyville Town Centre Intersection Upgrades

There are two intersections at North Kellyville Town Centre that will be upgraded - Barry Road/Withers Road, and Barry Road extension through to Hezlett Road.

Both intersection designs are complete, including the traffic signal designs at each location, and they will be submitted to Transport for NSW as a single package for approval of the traffic signal designs (These designs have already been submitted to Transport for NSW in the past eighteen months, but Council has received a series of questions and comments from Transport for NSW that must be addressed before the project proceeds). This happens with all traffic signal designs in Sydney, especially those that are on local roads under the control of Local Government.

Council does not expect any further amendments to this package, and the internal approval process by Transport for NSW is generally around three months. This internal process includes payment of fees and the appointment of a Transport Coordinator for supervision of the works.

Council will then work with this Transport Coordinator during the tender and construction process to get both sets of signals built and switched on as quickly as possible.

It must be noted that the intersections will require relocation of public utilities, and this component will dictate the speed of the project. Utility adjustments include power, water supply, recycled water supply, sewer, Telstra and other communications cabling, plus gas mains.

Such relocation is a complex process as many of these works cannot be done concurrently, and will rely on one utility provider completing their work, before the next moves in for their part of the job. Final sign-off is pending from Sydney Water and Telstra. There are no further design amendments required as a result of those two utility 'sign–offs'.

The two intersections will be tendered out as a single construction package, and depending on the availability of civil contractors to commence the work (given current weather conditions), Council believes the project should take less than eighteen months from the date of the tender being awarded, which will be later in 2022.

 

Withers Road Upgrade

The four lane upgrade of Withers Road will be the next stage of construction out from North Kellyville Town Centre west to Ironbark Ridge Road. The upgrade will not commence until the intersection works in the town centre are substantially underway, because Council will need to manage the flow of traffic around the shopping precinct in conjunction with the need to maintain access for residents travelling to and from work, as well as to local schools at Rouse Hill.

The designs for this section of Withers Road are almost complete, with utility approvals the only remaining part of the design to be provided to Council. Council expects to receive these approvals by June 2022.

After the utility approval have been received, Council will be in a position to tender for the construction within 12 months subject to the completion of property acquisitions for the wider road. With the designs having progressed, the property acquisitions are now the key component determining the timeline.

Property acquisitions are needed along several sections of the road, and negotiations with the relevant owners and developers are progressing and as always, Council hopes to avoid the need to go to compulsory acquisition. However, this acquisition process also requires the dedication of the land to Council as public road, and there is a well established process that must be followed with the State Government for the registration of the various parcels of land.

There are no additional traffic signals to be built for this section of Withers Road, so approvals from Transport for NSW are not required, but the project includes a larger roundabout at Mungerie Road, a new four lane bridge across Smalls Creek, an additional two lanes of traffic, as well as underground drainage, concrete footpaths, street lights, and landscaping.

The extent of these works will create significant difficulties during construction as the road cannot be closed to through traffic, and night works will be minimal due to the close proximity of residential homes. As a result, the project could take up to two years to complete from the award of the tender. Once again the relocation of public utilities, particularly telecommunication lines, will be a difficult and time consuming component of the project.

The above traffic projects are quite complex, with several layers of dependencies, and Council is working through them progressively. Council acknowledges that the works will take some time and will be an inconvenience while under construction for residents and commuters through that area. Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated.

 

Hezlett Road Upgrade

The upgrade of Hezlett Road to two lanes in each direction was completed in February 2022. The project has also allowed for the kerbside lanes of Hezlett Road to be clearways during the peak hour and available for parking during off peak hours. 

 

Foxall Road

Foxall Road is a major collector road with developers responsible for half width road construction fronting their development. Being a developer constructed route and not a council constructed road, it is not listed in the Contributions Plan and therefore it is not in Council’s capital works program.

 

Commercial Road Upgrade

Commercial Road is a designated sub-arterial route that provides important access to the regional shopping centre at Rouse Hill, as well as access to the regional recreational facilities east of the shopping centre.

The upgrade of this road to four lanes, between the shopping centre and Withers Road, is not funded in a Council Contribution Plan (CP), however the State Government has placed the route in the draft Special Infrastructure Contribution Levy - the State Government has not indicated when the necessary funds will be made available for the upgrade however preliminary designs have been prepared by Council should they become available.

 

Glenhaven Road Upgrade

The upgrade of Glenhaven Road, from the Samantha Riley Drive roundabout to the bridge over Cattai Creek, is a part of CP 13 for North Kellyville.

This year Council will commission design consultants in to finalise the plans in preparation for tendering the work for construction in the next five years.

The remaining section of the road, from the bridge heading east to Old Northern Road, will predominantly remain as it is following regional traffic modelling indicating that four lanes of traffic will not be required in the immediate future.

Council will also be upgrading the existing pedestrian crossing at Glenhaven School from a raised “wombat” facility to a signalized crossing later in 2022.

 

Ross Place/Edwards Road Bridge

A planned northern bridge connection from Ross Place to Annangrove Road (via Edwards Road) will be built to support both local traffic and public transport.

As a result, the connection between Ross Place and Annangrove Road is also identified to be upgraded to two lanes and will feature a heavy vehicle weight limit to reduce the amount of through traffic and heavy goods vehicles generated by the Annangrove Road Light Industrial Precinct and Box Hill Industrial and Residential Precincts.

The need to provide the bridge connection from Edwards Road to Ross Place  is established by the North Kellyville Contributions Plan No.13. As this route is expected to support future residents in Box Hill, the North Kellyville Transport and Traffic Assessment report identifies the need to construct the link to a collector road standard. The bridge connection to the North Kellyville Precinct will support improved access to the Box Hill Industrial (weight limited) and Box Hill Residential Precincts.

Council is currently working with NSW Environment, Energy and Science (ESS), as well as NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) in determining the most optimal route for the bridge alignment.

 

Planned Traffic Signals and Roundabouts

Traffic signals are planned or underway at Samantha Riley Drive and Hezlett Road, Hezlett Road and Gum Nut Close, Withers Road and Barry Road (the local Shopping Centre Perimeter Road) and at the Withers Road and Hezlett Road intersection (the local Shopping Centre Perimeter Road). Pedestrian signals will also be installed in front of North Kellyville Primary School.

A one-lane roundabout is planned for the intersection of Barry Road, Stringer Road and Hillview Place providing access to the Stringer Road Sportsgrounds and another at the end of Withers Road, intersecting with Fulton Place and Foxall Road.

Two lane roundabouts are planned at Samantha Riley Drive and Foxall Road and at Hezlett Road and Curtis Road.

 

Pedestrian Paths, Cycleways and Connecting Bridges

Footpaths and cycle paths are proposed along sub-arterial roads and collector roads connecting major land uses within the precinct including the town centre, neighbourhood centres, schools, parks and sports fields.

Proposed cycle paths on Hezlett Road and Withers Road will improve the conditions of the regional cycle route extending the Regional Green Link from Kellyville to North Kellyville and Rouse Hill.

The majority of cycleway routes within the North Kellyville Precinct will be provided by developers as required by the North Kellyville Development Control Plan, however the Contributions Plan provides for cycleways and crossings where they adjoin land reserved for a public purpose. 

Three cycle connections along Smalls Creek are proposed to provide pedestrian and cycle linkages between the precinct and the neighbouring built-up residential areas and the Rouse Hill Town Centre.

Three crossing points are proposed along Samantha Riley Drive including the signalised intersection at Hezlett Road and proposed footbridges connecting the Kellyville Greenway Link with the ridge top recreational cycle path within Samantha Riley Drive Reserve with the Glenhaven Road Bridge.

 

Bus Routes

An important objective in the development of the North Kellyville Precinct is to reduce car dependency through the provision of an efficient public transport system and pedestrian movement network. 

The public transport network in the North Kellyville Precinct operates on the sub-arterial corridor of Samantha Riley Drive, Hezlett Road and Withers Road.

A second route is also likely to operate on the collector road route of Foxall Road, Barry Road and Stringer Road to Annangrove Road. To support this network, nine bus stops have been located within reasonable walking distance of locations convenient to residents and future employees.  

Detention Basins, Raingardens and Roadside Swales

About Detention Basins

Oxlade Reserve Detention Basin.jpg

Located within various open space reserves throughout North Kellyville, detention basins serve to temporarily hold stormwater runoff allowing it to be released to downstream waterway systems in a controlled manner. These dry detention basins are designed to fill with water during rainfall and to completely empty out after a short period of time. 

There are fourteen detention basins that will service the entire North Kellyville Release Area. Seven of these basins have already been completed; the other seven basins have been designed and are awaiting construction.

Completed Detention Basins

Oxlade Street Reserve

Oxlade Reserve Detention Basin Plan.jpg

The wetland-detention system located within Oxlade Street Reserve was completed in 2019 benefiting the neighbouring community who use the Reserve for passive recreation.

The wetland-detention system comprises two interlinked basins that assist in volume control and water quality improvement of stormwater leaving the catchment.

The lower section of the basins, which retain water for an extended period of time, is the ‘wetland’ component that allows the retention and uptake of pollutants and nutrients.  The upper detention component provides storage for incoming flows to assist in controlling the release of flows to the downstream waterway.

Apart from their stormwater treatment and detention functions, the basins add aesthetic value to the Reserve and make improvements to the local ecology.

 

Bladensburg Road Reserve Basins.jpg Bladensburg Road Reserve

Bladensburg Road Reserve was designed to ensure the optimisation of the Reserve as a recreational open space for the area’s growing population ­­and to provide the infrastructure to manage both the volume and water quality of stormwater received from the upstream urban catchment.

The constructed wetlands comprise a series of two ponds, with the bigger pond cascading into the smaller one. From the ponds, the water continues through the Reserve to downstream waterways and bushland.

The lower section of the basins, which retain water for an extended period of time, is the ‘wetland’ component that allows the retention and uptake of pollutants and nutrients.

The upper detention component provides storage for incoming flows from the pipes off Kumbatine Crescent and Warrabah Road.

In addition to their function of controlling the volume and water quality of stormwater received from the upstream catchment, the basins add some aesthetic value to the reserve and benefit the neighbouring community that will regularly use the area for passive recreation.

 

Deepwater Circuit Reserve (South-Western Corner)

Located at Mapleton Avenue and Deepwater Circuit the detention basin was constructed to attenuate flows from the upstream catchment.

The basin is designed to detain flows up to the one in 100 year storm event from the developed catchment. Flows are discharged into Smalls Creek at a controlled rate.

Two other detention basins are proposed for the northern and middle sections of Deepwater Circuit. These two basins will provide detention of flows received from their respective catchments.

 

Raingardens and Roadside Swales

The North Kellyville Development Control Plan, prepared by NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment, includes development standards requiring on-lot rain gardens within the North Kellyville Precinct.

The North Kellyville Release Area differs from a lot of other release areas in that it is characterised by sloping land and high value remnant native vegetation along Smalls Creek and Cattai Creek. Consequently, compliance with water quality treatment targets in North Kellyville is met through a combination of on-lot rain gardens, roadside swales and basins/wetlands at key locations such as those mentioned above.

Rain gardens and roadside swales temporarily hold and improve the quality of stormwater runoff before reaching downstream waterways.

More information, including installation guidelines and maintenance plans, are available here.
