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
The Albion Park Rail bypass will extend the M1 Princes Motorway between Yallah and Oak Flats to bypass Albion Park Rail. The project received planning approval from the Department of Planning and Environment in January 2018, with construction due to start in early 2019.

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.

Foxground and Berry bypass
The Foxground and Berry bypass opened in November 2017. The bypass includes 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 also includes 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.
