Project background

Moss Vale Road links Nowra to the Southern Highlands via Kangaroo Valley. The road features narrow and steep mountain passes through Barrengarry and Cambewarra. The road an important route within the southern region and provides access for freight, tourism and local traffic.

Roads and Maritime have identified a number of improvements required on Moss Vale Road. Safety improvements at several locations will also be investigated.


Improvements planned for Moss Vale Road during 2017 and 2018 include:

  • Road repairs and resurfacing sections of Moss Vale Road
  • Rehabilitation work on Hampden Bridge
  • Slope repairs and stabilisation work following storm damage at various locations on Barrengarry Mountain and Cambewarra Mountain
  • Safety improvements on Barrengarry Mountain and near Kangaroo Valley Road
  • Essential maintenance activities at Barrengarry and Cambewarra Mountains.

Where possible we will carry out these improvements at the same time to minimise the impact on the local community. 

Roads and Maritime has been investigating options to improve safety on Moss Vale Road near Grahams Road and Willowglen Road and will carry out work to repair and resurface sections of the road at this location.
