BMD Constructions successfully completes Schofields Road Upgrade – Stage 3 project

A major road infrastructure upgrade project in Sydney’s North West Growth Area is now complete following the opening of the Schofields Road Upgrade – Stage 3 project on 28 June 2018. The final phase of the project saw the NSW Government and BMD Constructions open the westbound carriageway from Richmond Road to Veron Road, and commission two sets of traffic lights at the Fermoy Road and Carnarvon Road intersections. The successful restaging of the project avoided extended road closures during the project, allowing early construction of the last bridge at Bells Creek, taking advantage of the dry season and mitigating program pressure. The completed project has provided a flood free route from Richmond Road to Veron Road across Bells and Eastern creeks in Schofields, Western Sydney. Prior to the upgrade, the road frequently flooded resulting in road closures even in relatively minor rainfall events. The project’s scope of work involved a 2.5 kilometre upgrade to extend Schofields Road to four lanes from Veron Road, across Eastern Creek to Richmond Road, with the capacity to widen to six lanes in the future. Dedicated pedestrian and cyclist paths have also been built on both sides of the road to increase safety, as well as bus bays and bus priority lanes at major intersections to improve traffic flow. The successful completion of the Schofields Road Upgrade – Stage 3 project builds on BMD’s reputation for delivering best-for-project outcomes for long term client, Road and Maritime Services.
