Contract awarded for Berry to Bomaderry Princes Highway Upgrade design
12 January 2014
NSW Minister for Roads and Freight Duncan Gay and Member for Kiama Gareth Ward today announced a contract had been awarded to Hyder Consulting Pty Ltd to carry out detailed design work for the Berry to Bomaderry Princes Highway upgrade.
Minister Gay said this was a significant step towards the upgrade.
“The proposed upgrade of the Princes Highway between Schofields Lane at Berry and Cambewarra Road at Bomaderry will provide around 11.5 kilometres of divided highway, with two lanes in each direction,” Minister Gay said.
“Tenders were invited in early November from a pre-qualified list and closed in early December.
“I’m delighted we can now get on with the final design, which is a huge step for this much needed upgrade,” Minister Gay said.
Mr Ward said the final design was expected to be completed by early 2016.
“The NSW Government allocated $10 million to this project last year to progress planning for this upgrade,” he said.
“The project has made great progress in the past 12 months with a public display of environmental assessment and the concept design.
“The concept design is now being finalised and will be available for the community to view in early 2015.
“Since the display, the NSW Government has continued to liaise with property owners about potential impact from the upgrade and will keep the community informed as plans progress,” Mr Ward said.
