Changed traffic conditions for Gerringong upgrade

Member for Kiama Gareth Ward today advised local motorists across the region that the new Rose Valley Road bridge will open to traffic this month with the Rose Valley Road and Princes Highway interchange moving further north.

“Moving the intersection of Rose Valley Road and the Princes Highway north will allow building of the new highway to progress underneath the Rose Valley Road bridge,” Mr Ward said.

“Motorists will still be able to travel north and south from Rose Valley Road.

“A protected right turn bay will be installed for southbound vehicles entering Rose Valley Road from the Princes Highway.

“The two northbound lanes will remain in place on the Princes Highway, allowing northbound vehicles to turn left into Rose Valley Road.

“The u-turn bay and bus stop at Rose Valley Road will continue to operate at its temporary location,” he said.

“The traffic arrangements will remain in place until the new highway lanes are opened under Rose Valley Road bridge and the new u-turn bay and bus stop are complete, around the middle of the year, weather permitting.

“To prepare for this traffic change lane closures of the Princes Highway and Rose Valley Road may be required. Through access will be maintained at all times.

“Stop/slow traffic control, a reduced speed limit of 40km/h and advanced warning signs will be in place to help direct motorists.

“There may also be some night work on weeknights between 6pm and 7am. Roads and Maritime apologises for any inconvenience the work may cause,” Mr Ward said.
