Berry to Bomaderry – Princes Highway upgrade
Roads and Maritime Services will upgrade the Princes Highway between Berry and Bomaderry. The upgrade will provide around 10.6 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.
Planning approval for the project is now in place. The NSW Government has provided $4.5 million in 2015/16 to continue planning for the highway upgrade.
Current and upcoming work
Night work is planned on Monday 5 December 2016 between 7.30pm and 5am (weather permitting) to install bat boxes under existing bridges and culverts between Croziers Road and Jaspers Brush Road, Jaspers Brush.
For more information, see the night work notification attached.
Work to complete the detailed design for the project is underway and is expected to be finished in mid 2016.
Roads and Maritime has completed recovery of Aboriginal heritage items and carried out archaeological investigations of non-Aboriginal heritage items within the project area. Property acquisition is currently underway and will continue in 2016.
Concept design is complete
The concept design for the Princes Highway upgrade between Berry and Bomaderry is complete and available for you to view or download.
The design includes:
- A right turn bay into O’Keeffes Lane for northbound motorists
- A two metre wide road shoulder and pedestrian footpath at the Jaspers Brush / Strongs Road and Pestells Lane / Meroo Road overpasses and the Morschels Lane / Devitts Lane underpass
- A vehicle access track under the bridge at Flying Fox Creek
- A u-turn bay on Boxsells Lane
- Wildlife crossings under the highway at Flying Fox, Jaspers Brush and Wileys creeks
- Relocating the previously planned Pestells Lane / Meroo Road interchange north by about 50 metres to help reduce impacts to private properties
- Refining the design of the interchange at Morschels and Devitts lanes interchange to allow locally significant trees to be maintained, and to improve road user safety during construction.
Roads and Maritime has been consulting with property owners about the changes and their potential impacts.
Additional 900 metres to be built as part of Foxground and Berry bypass project
The Foxground and Berry bypass will be extended to the south, providing motorists with a further 900 metres of upgraded highway. This additional section will be built as part of the current work without increasing the construction period for the bypass.
The Berry to Bomaderry Princes Highway upgrade will now be 10.6 kilometres of four-lane highway with median separation between Mullers Lane, Berry and Cambewarra Road, Bomaderry.
