Mayor acknowledges and thanks Minister for his efforts regarding the proposed $2.5 billion upgrade to Great Western Highway between Katoomba and Lithgow.

Lithgow Mayor Ray Thompson acknowledged the recent announcement by the Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Paul Toole inviting community input into the Great Western Highway upgrade between Katoomba and Lithgow stating that –

“It is great to see the commitment from both the NSW Govt. and Minister Toole to progressing this project which has the potential to benefit all regional NSW as well as Lithgow.”

“Unfortunately, the deputy Mayor and myself together with senior management were in Sydney representing Lithgow in prearranged discussions with corporate representatives in the waste industry, and were unable to attend the Ministers kind invitation to attend at Hassan’s Wall for the announcement, but the Minister kindly passed on our apologies and support” ... said the Mayor.
