Designs to Upgrade Western Highway

Designs to Upgrade Western Highway

Detailed design plans for upgrades to the Great Western Highway are now on public display.

The New South Wales government has allocated five million dollars, this financial year, to start early on the 2.4 kilometre upgrades that run through Kelso.

The designs have been developed to include predicted future traffic patterns and to accommodate growth for at least twenty years after completion.

The upgrades include: a raised median strip, improved pedestrian and cyclist access, and large roundabouts to enabled U-turns.

The designs will be on display at the Bathurst Regional Council, the Bathurst Motor Registry and the Kelso Hotel until the 27th September.
