Princes Highway upgrade program
The Princes Highway upgrade program is a series of projects to improve safety and efficiency on one of NSW's main routes.
Albion Park Rail bypass
Roads and Maritime Services is planning for a future extension of the M1 Princes Motorway between Yallah and Oak Flats to provide a bypass of Albion Park Rail. The NSW Government has allocated $3 million in 2015/16 to continue planning for the Albion Park Rail bypass.
For more information, see the Albion Park Rail bypass project.
Princes Highway upgrade at Gerringong
Roads and Maritime Services officially opened the Princes Highway upgrade at Gerringong in August 2015. The upgrade provides 7.5 kilometres of upgraded highway between Mount Pleasant and Toolijooa Road and includes two new interchanges with access to Gerringong and Gerroa.
For more information, see the Gerringong upgrade project.
Foxground and Berry bypass
The Foxground and Berry bypass will provide a four-lane divided highway (two lanes in each direction) with median separation for 12.5 kilometres of the Princes Highway between Toolijooa Road and just south of Andersons Lane. The upgrade will include a bypass of the existing winding highway at Foxground and a bypass of Berry with access ramps at the north and south of the town. Fulton Hogan has been contracted to design and construct the Foxground and Berry bypass. Construction work is progressing and the bypass is expected to open to traffic in mid 2018, weather permitting.
For more information, see the Foxground and Berry Bypass project.
Berry to Bomaderry upgrade
Roads and Maritime Services plans to upgrade the Princes Highway between Berry and Bomaderry. The upgrade will provide around 11.5 kilometres of four-lane highway with median separation between Schofields Lane, Berry and Cambewarra Road, Bomaderry.
For more information, see the Berry to Bomaderry upgrade project.
Nowra Bridge project
Planning is underway for a new bridge that will improve conditions on the Princes Highway over the Shoalhaven River in Nowra. The Federal Government has committed $10 million over the next three years to complete planning.
For more information, see the Nowra Bridge project.
Termeil Creek upgrade
Roads and Maritime Services is upgrading the Princes Highway at Termeil Creek which will be built to modern highway standards. The project includes a new wider bridge over Termeil Creek and realignment of approximately 1.6 kilometres of the Princes Highway to improve the curves north of the bridge. Construction started in February 2015 and is expected to be complete by mid 2016, weather permitting.
For more information, see the Termeil Creek upgrade.
Burrill Lake Bridge
Roads and Maritime Services will replace the Burrill Lake Bridge on the Princes Highway, just south of Ulladulla by constructing a new bridge to the east of the existing bridge. The project will improve road safety by providing new intersections to modern safety standards and provide improved pedestrian and cyclist access. Construction started in late February 2016 and is expected to be complete by early 2018, weather permitting.
For more information, see the Burrill Lake Bridge project.
