The Little Hartley to Lithgow (West Section) Review of Environmental Factors (REF) and concept design was publicly displayed from 23 November 2021 until 16 January 2022.
The Submissions Report categorises and formally responds to submissions received from the community and stakeholders during the REF display. The Consultation Report summarises the community engagement activities carried out during the display period. Both reports are now available online.
The Little Hartley to Lithgow upgrade has now been approved with the exception of land currently reserved in the National Parks Estate. Transport for NSW will approve this section if a National Park revocation Bill passes NSW Parliament.
The project will be managed by Transport for NSW and funded by the Australian and NSW Governments.
