Outer West and Blue Mountains
The development of the North West Growth Centre means that there will be significant traffic growth in future years due to the increased residential and commercial development in these areas.
Planning has commenced for the Schofields Road upgrade with the selection of the preferred corridor being announced in February 2011.
The Great Western Highway upgrade program is improving travel times for motorists and is providing a safer road environment for all road users including pedestrians and cyclists.
The New South Wales Government has contributed $360 million towards the upgrade, with the Australian Government contributing $100 million and committing a further $300 million.
Outer west and Blue Mountains projects include:
- Bells Line of Road Long Term Strategic Plan.
- Windsor Bridge.
- Blackheath pedestrian crossing upgrade.
- Great Western Highway upgrade program.
- Mt Victoria to Lithgow.
