There is a proposal to upgrade the Great Western Highway between Katoomba and Lithgow. Most of the upgrade is to increase the number of lanes, but for Blackheath there are a few options:
1. Duplicate existing road
2. Outer bypass (crag impact)
3. Western bypass
4. Long and short tunnel options
The Outer Bypass option will impact the Centennial Glen and Shipley crags and our climbing community need to provide feedback to avoid this option being selected.
Have your say by filling out the feedback form by 16 December on https://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/projects/great-western-highway/katoomba-to-lithgow/index.html
