Fowler’s Road extension project
The Fowler’s Road extension project in Dapto is a four-lane, 1.3-kilometre road link between Fowlers Road and Fairwater Drive, linking West Dapto’s growing population to the M1 Motorway. It will increase safety, improve amenity for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians, and provide better access during flood events.
But a lack of funding and delays has meant that at the start of 2018, only Stage 1A has been completed.
There’s a lot more work to do. It’s anticipated work will continue into at least 2020. No completion date has been specified, but the Wollongong Lord Mayor has conceded it could take up to 2026 to complete.
I am monitoring the progress of this project to ensure no further delays and the people of Dapto and West Dapto get access to this link as soon as possible.
I will continue to fight for the infrastructure funding and support that this booming West Dapto area needs.
