Have your say on proposed Raby Rd widening

Campbelltown and Camden residents can now have their say on an early concept design for the proposed widening of Raby Rd to four lanes between Thunderbolt Drive and Gledswood Hills Drive.

The design includes the road widening and new signalised intersections at Gledswood Hills Drive and Thunderbolt Drive.

Campbelltown Mayor George Brticevic said Raby Rd is a major arterial connection for Campbelltown and the wider Macarthur region and a crucial east-west link with Camden.

"This concept design will inform future plans for the upgrade of the road, so this is an early opportunity for residents to have their say on this important project," Cr Brticevic said.

Engagement with landholders whose properties are directly impacted by any proposed design is ongoing.

The upgrade, along approximately 2.5 kilometres of Raby Road, is a joint venture between Campbelltown and Camden Councils, with NSW Government funding totalling $2.9 million for the project's complete design.

Camden mayor Theresa Fedeli said community feedback was necessary for the continuation of the project.

"We're currently the fastest growing Local Government Area in the country and we want to make sure our residents both now and, in the future, have high-quality infrastructure on their doorsteps," Cr Fedeli said.

"Raby Road is a crucial east-west link between Camden and Campbelltown areas, and I believe these works will continue to foster the growth of both areas over the next few years.

"I encourage the community to have their say about the design as we continue our work on this project."
