- Construction of a four lane urban road between Camden Valley Way and Soldiers Parade;
- Construction of a major box culvert along Maxwells Creek;
- Construction of a storm water drainage system including installation of two gross pollutants traps (GPT’s);\
- Installation of a 375mm water main, on behalf of Sydney Water;
- Installation of transmission ducts on behalf of Endeavour Energy;
- Relocation of Telstra, NBN, Jemena and Sydney Water Assets; and
- Streetscape embellishment involving landscaping, shared paths, footpaths and street lighting.
This road provides the main public transport access through Edmondson Park to the train station and will straighten the existing alignment of Croatia Avenue from Camden Valley Way. The extension of Bernera Road will provide an essential link between major State roads including M7, Hume Highway and Cowpasture Road between the suburbs of Casula and Carnes Hill.
The works will commence in April 2018 and are planned to be completed by early 2019, subject to favourable weather conditions.
Traffic control arrangements including detours will be put in place. Please refer to this map showing the detour route.
