Wentworth Falls East New South Wales Blue Mountains

Integrating engineering and urban design solutions to accommodate the Blue Mountain’s sensitive natural environment.

Improving the narrow Great Western Highway at Wentworth Falls meant 2.3 kilometers of new dual roadways, safer intersections, and improved shared pedestrian and cyclist pathways.

In this first ‘Design Only Alliances’, Arcadis’s integrated engineering and urban design solutions had to sensitively accommodate the Blue Mountain’s existing built and natural environments, while also staging works to reduce impacts on people, animals and bushland in this World Heritage location.

Consultation, clear, regular communication and transparency, as well as the very highest environmental standards, were embedded from day one of planning, a process that saw the Blue Mountains community support the project to the end.
