West Ward is growing and changing.
Memorial Avenue upgrade
Last year, Council completed the brand new Greenway Bridge over Memorial Avenue, which is a significant part of the NSW Government’s Memorial Avenue upgrade, providing a safe pedestrian and cycling link across the road.
The Memorial Avenue upgrade will be one of the largest projects impacting WestWard, as more than 30,000 motorists use this road each day. Ultimately the road will be transformed from two lanes to a fourlane divided road, with shared pedestrian and cycle ways on both sides. Intersection upgrades and improved access to public transport will create a safer experience for residents and road users.
Early work on this project is now complete - you can find a link to the RMS video showing the full scope of the project on Council’s website by searching for ‘Road Project – Memorial Avenue Upgrade’.
Balmoral Road Reserve
Council is delivering a new sports and recreational complex at Balmoral Road Reserve, Kellyville in partnership with the NSW Government with funds from their Accelerated Infrastructure Fund. Thisexciting new open space will have sports fields, tennis courts, change rooms, picnic areas and a playground and is essential for our growing population. The project is expected to be completed in late 2022.
Work has begun on playing field extensions at Kellyville Memorial Park to create two new double playing fields, with the project expected to be completed by the end of the year. The park already has both baseball and rugby league fields and is used for elite level sport. The new fields will create even more space for play and opportunities for local aspiring sports people in the future.
