Davies launches petition to “Save Mamre Road” 

Tanya Davies, Member for Badgerys Creek, has initiated a petition urging the Minns Labor Government to assure the future of the Mamre Road Upgrade Stage 1. Ms Davies said with the first Labor Budget in 12 years approaching on 19 September 2023, the anticipation and concern within the Western Sydney community was intensifying.

“Western Sydney can’t afford to see years of planning, consultation and financial commitment go to waste,” Mrs Davies said.

“This isn’t just another infrastructure project—it’s a lifeline, a catalyst for growth and an essential connector for our community with the Western Sydney International Airport”.

Timeline Highlights:

• Pre-2019: $220 million commitment from the NSW Liberal Government.

• 2020-2021: Stage 1 planning, investigations, and community feedback.

• July 2022: Detailed design kick-off.

2022-2023: $200+ million earmarked for the next three years.

• 2023: Construction set to begin.

“Yet, with the introduction of the Minns Labour Government’s “Strategic Infrastructure Review”, the committed funds and the upgrade’s very existence are now in jeopardy,” Mrs Davies said.

“We’ve laid a foundation for Western Sydney’s growth and connectivity. The Mamre Road upgrade is pivotal for our region’s development.”

“The petition seeks to rally community and wider support, putting pressure on Premier Chris Minns and Deputy Premier Prue Car to not axe the project and ensure Western Sydney’s prosperous future,” Ms Davies added.

Nepean News reached out to Deputy Premier Prue Car for comment. 

“For years, the former Liberal and National government neglected local road projects like Mamre Road in favour of building toll roads,” Ms Car said. “Our local community has been campaigning for these local upgrades for years.

The Minns Government will have more to say on local road commitments in the upcoming Budget.”
