What’s this about?

The bridge between Richmond and North Richmond provides a vital crossing of the Hawkesbury River, and carries an average of 31,000 vehicles per day with a single lane in each direction.

In 2013, Transport for NSW prepared the Richmond Bridge and approaches congestion study: Preferred short-term and long-term options report. The study identified the need for additional bridge capacity and three intersection upgrades to improve travel times and journey time reliability and provide for future growth. So far we have:

  • upgraded the intersection of Kurrajong Road and Old Kurrajong Road
  • upgraded the intersection of Bells Line of Road and Grose Vale Road
  • made significant progress on the upgrade of the intersection of March Street and Bosworth Street.

What are we trying to achieve?

The key objective of this project is to reduce congestion between Richmond and North Richmond and build for future growth. We also aim to improve:

  • journey time reliability
  • connectivity between Bells Line of Road and the main road network
  • flood resilience
  • amenity and support economic development in the town centres of Richmond and North Richmond
  • safety along the road corridor between Richmond and North Richmond
  • public and active transport connections.

Following assessment, ongoing engagement with the local working group and considering community feedback, Transport has identified a preferred option for an additional bridge over the Hawkesbury River at North Richmond.
