Medlow Bath Upgrade REF web portal

Indicative only, final layout to be determined through detailed design

The Review of Environmental Factors for the Great Western Highway Project - Medlow Bath Upgrade was displayed from 27 July – 5 September 2021.

Following liaison with key local stakeholders, including Blue Mountains City Council, environmental assessment for the Great Western Highway duplication between Katoomba and Blackheath will be considered and determined at once to capture all the potential impacts of the upgrade between the two Blue Mountains townships, including Medlow Bath.

This means that the determination of the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) for Medlow Bath and the release of the Submissions Report to this REF will be held until the REF for the Katoomba to Blackheath section of the upgrade has completed its display.

Transport for NSW plans to exhibit the REF for the East section of the highway upgrade, between the towns of Katoomba and Medlow Bath and Medlow Bath and Blackheath, in the first half of 2022.
