Route Numbering:

General Information:

State Route 40 is major route of New South Wales. The eastern section is an arterial road linking various western and inner western suburbs with Sydney's CBD. The western section is an alternative route over the Blue Mountains, connecting the state's west to Sydney.

As a result of traffic pattern changes and various road upgrades in northwestern Sydney, SR40 was decommissioned in favour of a superior route in 2007. 2 For a number of years SR40 duplexed with Metroad 2 along Windsor Rd between Kellyville and Windsor, but eventually it was decommissioned after upgrades to dual carriageway were completed.
