Great Western Highway Upgrade

The State and Federal Governments have funded the upgrade of the Great Western Highway through the Blue Mountains which involved the widening the highway to four lanes between Emu Plains and Katoomba and to mostly three lanes between Katoomba and Mount Victoria.  A revised program of works for the Great Western Highway between Mount Victoria and Lithgow is also being undertaken.

This work has been completed by the NSW Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) and its contractors. Whilst the ultimate responsibility for the numerous projects is that of the RMS, the Council has a key role of working in partnership with the RMS to ensure that a high quality design approach is adopted and appropriate for the context of the Blue Mountains. The Council also has a responsibility in advocating for residents and business that may be affected by road work activities.

The most current information can be found at the RMS website which will provide you with a direct link to the particular highway upgrade projects and related information on the current status and timelines for works, the project scope and relevant documents.
