Hawkesbury City Council welcomes the State Government’s announcement of $100 million for the construction of the Pitt Town Bypass.
The proposal includes the extension of Pitt Town Road past Bathurst Street onto Cattai Road, east of Eldon Street. The announcement confirmed that the route has been finalised and the necessary land acquisitions have taken place.
The project has been touted by the State Government as being crucial to improving flood resilience and reducing light and heavy traffic flow in and around the growing town of Pitt Town, benefiting the safety and amenity of residents.
Hawkesbury City Mayor Sarah McMahon said that this was good news for Pitt Town and now means that after years of discussion, the government can move on with the job of delivering the bypass.
“Pitt Town residents have been waiting a long time for this project to come to fruition. I am approached almost weekly about this project by locals,” Mayor McMahon said.
“It is an important project not just for Pitt Town, but also for residents and businesses right across the Hawkesbury traveling to and from The Hills on a regular basis.
“With this $100 million announcement, the expectation within the Hawkesbury community is that the government will act immediately to bring this long-promised piece of road infrastructure into reality.”
