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.
