Selection of a preferred option
Roads and Maritime Services and Blue Mountains Council explored options for the Glenbrook Intersection Upgrade. In October 2015, Blue Mountains Council consulted with the community on four options.
The preferred option proposes new traffic lights at the Ross Street and Great Western Highway intersection, as well as modification to the Great Western Highway to Mann Street intersection where turn movements will be rationalised by restricting Mann Street access to a left turn only and left only access to Wascoe Street from Mann Street and also left turn access from Wascoe Street to the highway
The preferred option has been identified and endorsed by Blue Mountains City Council and detailed design is currently underway.
What happens next?
Construction is expected to start mid-2017 and be completed by late 2017.
