M7-M12 Integration Project Overview
 

To future-proof M7 and M12 Motorways, and to provide a major boost to the road network in Western Sydney, the NSW Government has commissioned the M7-M12 Integration Project, which includes three major elements:

  • M7-M12 Interchange: a connection between the new toll-free M12 Motorway and the existing Westlink M7 Motorway
  • Elizabeth Drive Connection: a new connection between the M12 Motorway and Elizabeth Drive, and the realignment of Wallgrove and Cecil Roads at Cecil Hills
  • Westlink M7 Widening: a new lane in each direction within the existing median of the M7 between the M5 and Richmond Road, excluding at the Westlink M7/M4 Motorway (Light Horse) Interchange


The M7-M12 Integration Project will widen the M7 Motorway from the existing two lanes to three lanes in each direction between the M5 Motorway and Richmond Road. From 23 October 2023, the speed limit on the M7, between the M5 Motorway at Prestons and Richmond Road at Oakhurst, will be reduced from 100km/hr to 80km/hr. 

The M7 will be introducing temporary speed limit changes between the M5 Motorway at Prestons and Richmond Road at Oakhurst from 23 October 2023 while roadworks are underway to keep motorists and our workers safe. 

Safety barriers will be installed along the median in both directions on the M7 to safely separate motorists from the construction area. The speed limit will be reduced from 100km/hr to 80km/hr as the barriers are installed. 

The work will also include line marking and the removal of some emergency stopping bays and emergency phones. During this time, all calls to our community information number 1800 712 712 will connect directly to our Traffic Control Room who will be able to assist. 

For the safety of motorists, our workers and to limit traffic disruptions, this work will take place at night between 6pm and 7am from Monday to Saturday (subject to approvals). 

Please drive safely and follow the directions of traffic controllers and signage. Please note, construction speed limits are enforceable.
