Blackheath Highway Action Group

Blackheath Highway Action Group
Long Description

The Blackheath Highway Action Group (‘BAG’) is a joint initiative of the Blackheath Area Neighbourhood Centre and the Blackheath & District Chamber of Commerce & Community.
Whilst BAG supports proposals that improve safety for road users, issues of particular concern are any proposal that would open up the Great Western Highway to larger trucks (25/6 m B-Doubles and 30m B-Doubles) which would have a negative impact on the whole Blue Mountains community. BAG continues to lobby the NSW and Federal Government to commit to a long term strategy for the movement of freight between Sydney and the Central West that would make better use of existing and planned rail infrastructure.

BAG has approximately 200 supporters and includes representatives from the Blackheath Area Neighbourhood Centre, Blackheath & District Chamber of Commerce, Blackheath Rhododendron Festival, the Blackheath Public School Council, the Blackheath Mount Victoria RSL Sub-branch, the Blackheath Streetscape Group and Friends of Blackheath Pool and Memorial Park.
