BAG Response To Tunnel Announcements

3rd May 2021


The BAG committee supports the announcement for the NSW Government to investigate a 11km tunnel under Blackheath and Mount Victoria, noting that any tunnel proposal must be subject to an EIS in accordance with world’s best practice noting the World Heritage Area and Blue Mountains National Park status. The BAG committee welcomes the NSW Government's commitment for a 4.5km tunnel under Blackheath which will totally bypass the whole of Blackheath. This is very good news for our community. We note that the EIS should be in accordance with world’s best practice noting the World Heritage Area and Blue Mountains National Park status. This is to ensure we get the best tunnel with the best environmental protections. We remain concerned about proposals for Medlow Bath and believe that the NSW Government should investigate a longer tunnel to also bypass Medlow Bath.
