Berry to Bomaderry - Princes Highway upgrade

Roads and Maritime Services plans to upgrade the Princes Highway between Berry and Bomaderry. The upgrade will provide about 10.5 kilometres of four-lane highway with median separation between Mullers Lane, Berry and Cambewarra Road, Bomaderry.

Once the highway upgrade between Berry and Bomaderry is built it will complete four lanes of divided highway between Waterfall and Jervis Bay Road, Falls Creek.

The NSW Government has provided $19 million in the 2017/18 financial year to start construction of the highway upgrade.

The NSW Government has provided $19 million in 2017/18 financial year to start construction of the highway upgrade.

The detailed (final) design for the highway upgrade is complete. The upgrade includes four lanes of divided highway (two lanes in each direction) that will improve road safety and traffic efficiency. This upgrade continues on from the current construction work between Foxground and Berry and the Gerringong upgrade that was officially opened to motorists in August 2015.

Current and upcoming work

In preparation for the highway upgrade to commence, work to relocate utility services is underway and is expected to be finished in early 2018, weather permitting. The highway speed limit on the Princes Highway in the project area (between Mullers Lane, Berry and Cambewarra Road, Bomaderry) will have a reduced speed limit of 80km/h in place for the safety of motorists and workers until the end of 2017.

Generally, work will be carried out Mondays to Fridays between 7am and 6pm and reduced roadwork speed limits will apply. There will be temporary stopping of highway traffic for up to two minutes as required while work is progressing.

Motorists should plan their trip, allow for extra travel time, keep to speed limits and follow the direction of traffic control and road signs.

Work to upgrade the roundabout at Cambewarra and Moss Vale roads is now complete.

The upgrade work involved building a left turn “slip” lane for motorists turning out of Moss Vale Road that are travelling north on the Princes Highway. It also included building an additional lane on the northern side of the roundabout for motorists exiting Moss Vale Road and either travelling south on the Princes Highway or east on Cambewarra Road.
