Have a say on the Glenbrook intersection upgrade
18 October 2017
The community is invited to have a say on a proposal to improve access and safety at Glenbrook by upgrading the Great Western Highway between Ross and Hare streets.
The Australian and NSW governments are jointly funding the $5 million Glenbrook intersection upgrade as part of the $3.6 billion Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan.
A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said community feedback will help to further develop the upgrade which aims to improve road safety, reduce congestion and support access for the area.
“The Glenbrook intersection upgrade will improve safety and access along the Great Western Highway while enhancing the primary gateway to Glenbrook Village,” the spokesperson said.
“Key features of the proposal include new traffic lights at the Great Western Highway and Ross Street intersection with pedestrian crossings, right turns from Ross Street onto the Great Western Highway, and extending the existing right turn lanes on the Great Western Highway to improve safety for motorists.
“The proposal will also restrict access to the Great Western Highway southbound from Hare Street with access to be maintained for emergency vehicles.
“This proposal will improve direct access to Glenbrook village for both pedestrians and vehicles while maintaining good operating conditions on Great Western Highway.
“It is also based on the option most favoured by the community at the initial public display of options in 2015, as documented in the 2015 Blue Mountains City Council Submissions Report.”
Members of the community are encouraged to provide feedback on the design and Review of Environmental Factors report for the Glenbrook upgrade by Sunday 12 November.
The Review of Environmental Factors report can be viewed at www.rms.nsw.gov.au/wsip, at Blaxland Library and the Glenbrook Visitor Information Centre.
The project team is also available to discuss the plan by calling 1800 703 457.
Feedback can also be provided to firstname.lastname@example.org or by writing to Roads and Maritime Services, PO Box 973, Parramatta NSW 2124.
