Two critical intersections in North Kellyville have been given the green light for upgrades to improve overall safety, accessibility, and traffic flow.

The Hills Shire Council awarded the tender to transform the intersections at Withers and Barry Roads and Hezlett and Barry Roads to signalised intersections during the April 23 Ordinary Meeting of Council.

Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Peter Gangemi said he’s looking forward to seeing this key North Kellyville project completed.

“Continuing to upgrade our roads and intersections is of paramount importance as more families move into The Hills” Mayor Gangemi said.

“I am looking forward to seeing the Barry Road bypass improve connectivity and safety for motorists and pedestrians.

“I want to thank our residents for their patience as this project continues through to the next stage of construction. I encourage them to drive to the construction speed limits and follow directions and signage.”

The project's key features include the construction of a four-way fully signalised intersection to replace the existing three-way roundabout between Withers and Barry Roads.

A new link road, Barry Road Bypass, will be developed to connect with the existing intersection at Hezlett Road, which will also be upgraded to a three-way signalised intersection.

In addition, a shared pathway from Armbruster Avenue to Withers Road will also be built alongside Hezlett Road.

The project is expected to commence in June 2024 and is anticipated to take 12 months to complete, weather permitting.
