and the Evans & Peck report has finally been released to the public. See it here:  http://www.rta.nsw.gov.au/roadprojects/projects/western_region/mt_victoria_lithgow/documents/gwh_upgrades_west_katoomba_independent_review.pdf

Following an independent review, the NSW and Australian governments have agreed on a revised program of work for the Great Western Highway upgrade between Mount Victoria and Lithgow. This program of work will include:

  • Finalising the concept design and road boundaries for upgrading the highway between Mount Victoria and Lithgow.
  • A three lane upgrade at Forty Bends.
  • An enhanced safety works program.
  • Using remaining funds from the joint $250 million Australian and NSW government commitment to fund upgrades between Mount Victoria and Katoomba.

More detail about the NSW and Australian governments’ response to the independent review can be found on the project overview page.

  1. What rot it’s great news, is this a highway or a side street? it only suits those that probably need to be retested to see if they should hold a license or if they are a hindrance to other road users, 80kph is nothing more than a money grabbing exercise!

  2. Great news is they’ve finally reduced the speed limit through the valley to a much safer and more appropriate 80kph which suits the current road conditions.
    Can’t wait ’til they make a safe right hand turning lane into Mid Hartley Road. They did promise us this in August 2011!!! Were only waiting for the weather to warm up so the paint would dry!!!!
