A fast, reliable, and safe one-hour road connection between Western Sydney and the Central West.
We believe bridging the divide between the two regions will open up and revitalise the Central West to act as a pressure relief valve for Western Sydney. Both regions are stronger together.
Ease of access to the Central West is fundamental to the growth of Sydney and NSW. With Sydney’s population growing rapidly, a one-hour road connection will allow the development of new population expansion areas to ensure people have access to affordable and enjoyable lifestyles – less apartments and more houses with backyards.
This is a project that will unlock productivity, connectivity and affordability benefits that fuel economic investment and growth, more jobs, social prosperity and ensure a sustainable future for the region.
We are calling on the state and commonwealth government to
Acknowledge the critical need for a one-hour road connection from Western Sydney to the Central West to secure a sustainable future for the regions and act as a growth lever.
Fully co-fund then construct the proposed Katoomba to Lithgow Great Western Highway duplication and optimise the route to minimise travel times, and bypass town centres to improve local amenity and safety.
Set up a taskforce and fund the planning phase for improving the route from Western Sydney to Katoomba to assist with disaster management, improve safety and local amenity and reduce travel times.
