$4.5b contract awarded to Abergeldie Complex Infrastructure for the upgrade of Great Western Highway, with major construction to begin at Medlow Bath in early 2023.
Deputy Premier, Minister for Regional NSW and Member for Bathurst Paul Toole said the Medlow Bath upgrade will mark the first section of major work on the Great Western Highway upgrade between Lithgow and Katoomba.
“The Great Western Highway upgrade is fast becoming a reality – major work is due to start as soon as March on this project which will be life changing for the thousands of people that use the road every day,” says Deputy Premier, Minister for Regional NSW and Member for Bathurst Paul Toole.
“The NSW Government has worked incredibly hard to ensure this transformative project happens- because we know the difference it will make from the Blue Mountains and beyond,” says Deputy Premier, Minister for Regional NSW and Member for Bathurst Paul Toole.
As part of the upgrade, 1.2-kilometre section of highway through Medlow Bath will be widened to four lanes with new dedicated right turning lanes and a signalised intersection will be built at Bellevue Crescent including a new left turning bay, and a new pedestrian bridge.
The NSW Government is also inviting community feedback on the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Blackheath to Little Hartley tunnel from next month.
