The NSW Government is investing $470 million to build the M4 Smart Motorway, which will introduce intelligent technology to the M4, to create the first smart motorway of its kind in NSW. The project aims to reduce stop-start traffic and improve travel times.
The M4 Smart Motorway project includes a 35 kilometre upgrade along the M4 Motorway from Granville's Pitt Street to the Blue Mountains region of Lapstone and utilises real time information, communication and smart traffic management systems that work together to smooth the flow of traffic, ease congestion, efficiently manage incidents and improve road safety.
