Campaign to widen the shoulders at Faulconbridge
A local campaign to lobby government to widen the east and west bound road shoulders between Todarellos fruit house and the Metro Petroleum, Faulconbridge.
Cyclists consistently state that this part of the Great Western Highway (GWH) is one of the most dangerous sections of shared road for cyclist and motorists in the Blue Mountains
The existing road shoulders are non-compliant with the Australian guidelines for safer road design for high-speed roads
The hazardous, non-compliant road shoulders are a deterrent for cyclists using the road and this is inconsistent with government KPIs to increase the number of cycle trips per share of mode of transport.
