THE future of Cambridge Avenue, Moorebank, is uncertain now that there are rumours that this road may be closed to the public.
The road is an important link connecting Liverpool residents and services to those in neighbouring suburbs in the Campbelltown and Macarthur region.
The Department of Defence owns Cambridge Avenue, which is one of several roads in and around Liverpool to which Defence has given the public access.
Last week a Defence spokesman confirmed that the department was assessing a variety of options for the future of the road now that Defence relocation works were well under way.
The spokesman said the department would assess how the community would be affected before any decision was made.
"There are a number of commonwealth-owned roads in the Moorebank area, including a portion of Cambridge Avenue," he said.
"These roads were originally built for Defence purposes and are also open to the public.
"Defence is relocating units from existing sites in Moorebank Avenue to Holsworthy and West Wattle Grove, which will significantly reduce its footprint on Moorebank Avenue. As a result, Defence is assessing its required use of these roads and will liaise with relevant stakeholders, prior to any decisions being made, including whether it would be more appropriate for such roads to be transferred to the relevant state or local authority."
