Development consent has been granted for the construction of the Horsley Drive Business Park, which is at the corner of The Horsley Drive and Cowpasture Road. The condition of development consent requires the provision of a two-lane circulating roundabout for future access to the Horsley Drive Business Park.

To facilitate the construction of the roundabout and associated works on Cowpasture Road, the Fairfield Traffic Committee approved the temporary closure of Cowpasture Road (in the section between Newton Road and Victoria Street), to provide a safe operating space for the construction works to be undertaken.

The work is being done by AWJ Civil Pty Ltd on behalf of the developer of Horsley Drive Business Park, Frasers Group.

The buses (routes 814 and 835) servicing the industrial area of Wetherill Park will be detoured away from the work area via Newton Road, Victoria Street and Bentley Street.

The proposed construction works on Cowpasture Road started in early January 2016 and are expected to be completed in early May 2016, weather permitting.

Variable Message Sign Boards have been installed to advise the motorists about the closure. Advance signage advising motorists of road detours have also been placed.

Further information related to the closure can be obtained by contacting Council’s Traffic and Transport Branch on 9725 0222.
