Katoomba to Mount Victoria

The Australian and NSW governments are undertaking a $250 million upgrade package on the Great Western Highway between Katoomba and Lithgow to improve traffic flow, safety and travel conditions.

The Great Western Highway upgrade is being carried out in sections to provide road users with a better travelling experience and includes a number of projects which are underway, including safety upgrades at Forty Bends, in the Hartley Valley and Mount Victoria village.

The remaining funding will be used for safety upgrades in a priority order between Katoomba and Mount Victoria.

Roads and Maritime prepared a Review of Environmental Factors to examine the potential impacts of the proposed upgrade to the Great Western Highway, Katoomba to Mount Victoria, and outline measures to reduce and manage the impacts. This Review was displayed for community and stakeholder comment from 3 February to 3 March 2016.

We would like to thank everyone who took the time to consider the proposal and provide feedback.

Next steps

We will consider all comments in finalising the proposal and design and will prepare a community consultation report to respond to matters the community and stakeholders raised during the display.
