Western Precinct

The preferred option supported by the Bells Line Expressway Group (BLEG) invloves a high-speed road link bypassing Lithgow to the north.  This option has less steep grades and only minor creek crossings.  It is referred to as the "Newnes Plateau" option.

Central Precinct

The preferred option supported by BLEG invloves a high-speed road link with lower speed sections including Mount Tomah where a tunnel is being considered.  Includes bypasses of towns such as Berambing and Bilpin.

Eastern Precinct

A lower speed section generally along the existing alignment is the preferred option for the Eastern Precinct.  This enables better servicing of existing local traffic needs and enables effective integration with likely future expansion of residential development in the area.
