Final stages of utility relocations underway as part of Berry to Bomaderry upgrade
5 July 2018
Member for Kiama Gareth Ward MP has today announced that the Berry to Bomaderry upgrade is a step closer, as the final stages of utility service relocation work gets under way in preparation for major work to start on the highway upgrade later this year.
Mr Ward said that the NSW Government provided $450 million for the project, to improve traffic flow and road safety on the Princes Highway between Mullers Lane, Berry and Cambewarra Road in Bomaderry.
“When work is complete this section of road will be the final piece of more than 30 kilometres of upgraded highway between Gerringong and Bomaderry since 2012,” he said.
“Ausconnex has been engaged by Roads and Maritime to relocate electrical utility services in preparation for major work to start.
“There will be some intermittent impacts to electricity supply at some properties to complete the relocations and those residents will be contacted directly by Ausconnex.
“Utility relocation work is planned to continue until August between Cambewarra Road, Bomaderry and Croziers Road in Berry.
“Changed traffic conditions, including temporary traffic stoppages, will be in place until August to allow for the utility service relocation work to be carried out. These changes to traffic conditions are for the safety of workers and motorists and may affect travel times by up to ten minutes.
“Motorists should plan their trip, allow extra travel time and follow the direction of traffic control and all signs, including a reduced speed limit of 80 km/h between Mullers Lane, Berry and Cambewarra Road in Bomaderry.
“All local community members will be kept informed as this important project progresses.
“I thank local motorists for their patience during this time,” Mr Ward concluded.
