Updates and announcements

The work on Hampden Bridge is complete, meaning the closures on Tuesday 14 and Wednesday 15 November are no longer required.

Community drop in session

We thank the community for providing feedback about the Hampden Bridge repair work and timing at the drop-in session held in Kangaroo Valley in October. Information from this session has been used to help plan for the repairs on Hampden Bridge to ensure that the work has limited impact on the community.

We will provide further information to the community about feedback on other work including maintenance closures in early 2018.

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.
