Kellyville North is the new suburb ... and there is 25 ACRES sold to Developers by ZARZAR Development property.. (thats a whopping 101,171.41sq Metres).. thats estimated 200 homes.


200 homes (AT) 4 people per home is only 800 people. That is not that much, maybe one street lined with houses.

How long before the Schofields (long abandoned) Airport gets reclaimed like happened to Hoxton Park a few years ago.

yeah but that Scholfields EST 20,000 homes?.....

average house has 2 cars... thats 40,000 cars... Windsor Road for e.g from james Ruse Drive past seven hills is already a nightmare after 2:30pm... imagine the devastation

I am going to update wikpedia Bike Paths in Sydney re the M2. Does this reflect the current status of this sorry saga ? Anything you would add re exit and entry points.
Cyclists have been poorly treated on the M2 Hills Motorway, between North Ryde and Seven Hills. The M2 does not have a separate cycle lane or path. Instead cyclists are expected to use the breakdown lane. Cyclist access was removed in 2010 during construction work on the M2 upgrade. During that time, cyclists were required to use an alternate route on suburban streets that was 5 km longer, steeper & slower [link to http://www.hillsmotorway.com.au/files/M ... uction.pdf ]. The design of the alternative route was criticised due to safety concerns [link to http://www.pushon.com.au/?p=295 ].

In August 2013 access was restored westbound from Delhi Road to Windsor Road. Citybound access was restored only for the section from Windsor Road to Pennant Hills Road due to work to stabilise the embankment near the eastbound lanes at Marsfield. This work is expected to take until September 2015 and during that time cyclists will be unable to access the M2 city bound between Pennant Hills Road and Lane Cove Road. [link to http://www.rta.nsw.gov.au/roadprojects/ ... 2_upgrade/ ]. The citybound alternate route is [link to http://www.hillsm2.com.au/files/alt_cyc ... stage3.pdf ]
The M2 connects to the M7 at Seven Hills and to ???? at Delhi Road

I think the Naremburn to North Ryde Cycleway section will also need to be updated as it currently says "You can transfer from the M2 cycleway (only operating east bound) at the junction of Epping Rd and Lane Cove Rd"
