Katoomba to Lithgow – Great Western Highway upgrade
The Australian and NSW Governments are investing $250 million to upgrade the Great Western Highway between Katoomba and Lithgow.
Consultation on the Review of Environmental Factors and concept design for the safety upgrade of the Great Western Highway from Katoomba to Mount Victoria closed on 3 March 2016. We would like to thank everyone who took the time to consider our proposal and provide feedback. We will consider all comments in finalising the proposal and design and will continue to liaise with the community throughout the project. We will prepare a community consultation report to respond to matters the community and stakeholders raised during the display.

The REF for the safety upgrades through Mount Victoria village has been finalised. A submissions report has been prepared detailing the feedback received and how it was addressed in finalising the REF.
The safety improvements at Forty Bends and in Hartley Valley between Victoria Pass and Forty Bends will have benefits for road users and the local community. Construction to deliver these improvements started in December 2014 and is progressing well.
