Learn more about the Mount Victoria Village safety upgrade
The local community and stakeholders are invited to staffed displays being held later this week to view the draft concept design for the proposed safety upgrade of the Great Western Highway in Mount Victoria village.
“Once completed the upgrade will deliver benefits including improved safety for motorists and pedestrians as well as for through traffic,” a Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said.
“The upgrade work includes improvements to village intersections, the Mount Piddington Road curve, better property access and wider shoulders.
“The staffed displays give the community an opportunity to meet the project team, learn more about the draft concept design and ask questions about the proposed safety upgrade.
“Community comments together with the investigations carried out will help determine a final design for the work, which is expected in the first half of next year.
“The draft concept design for the proposed safety work in Mount Victoria village incorporates community feedback received on the draft plan which was released late last year.
“Changes made as a result of feedback on the early plans include safer vehicle access to properties and wider shoulders,” the spokesperson said.
The NSW and Federal governments have allocated $250 million to improve safety along the Great Western Highway between Katoomba and Lithgow. This includes safety improvements at Mount Victoria village.
The staffed displays will be held on Friday 30 August from 6pm to 8pm and on Saturday 31 August from 11am to 3pm at Mount Victoria Public School.
