Three Macarthur Roads are about to get an upgrade.

Hume MP Angus Taylor has announced funding for four new road projects, including $8 million for a feasibility study and upgrades to Silverdale Road.

Mr Taylor said the projects would be funded under round three of the $200 million Local Roads Package to support growth and liveability in Western Sydney.

"These upgrades will mean less congestion and better transport links for people living and working in western Sydney," he said.

"Many of these roads or intersections have a significant crash history, particularly Silverdale Rd, so I'm pleased that these upgrades will improve road safety and traffic flow."

Funding for local road projects in Hume also including $3.2 million to build a new roundabout and approach lanes on Porrende Street Narellan at the intersection of the Narellan Sports Hub and $650,699 for concept design work to the Remembrance Driveway corridor at Elizabeth Macarthur Avenue and Armour Avenue intersections.
