Dignams Creek - Princes Highway upgrade

Roads and Maritime Services is upgrading the Princes Highway at Dignams Creek, around 20kms south of Narooma.

The $45 million upgrade aims to improve road safety by widening the current highway for about 800 metres and building a new two kilometre section to current highway standards. It also involved building new bridges over Dignams Creek and Dignams Creek Road.

The upgrade is expected to be completed by mid-2019, weather permitting.

Updates and announcements

The $45 million Princes Highway upgrade at Dignams Creek has reached a major milestone with motorists now able to travel along a new two kilometre section.

Progress over the last three months includes completion of the new Dignams Creek and Dignams Creek Road Bridges, road surface and drainage work and the commencement of revegetation work.

Work hours

Work will be carried out between 7am to 6pm, from Monday to Friday and 8am to 5pm on Saturdays.

We will give advance notice of any further work required outside these hours, including night work.

Traffic changes

Traffic switched onto 2 kilometres of improved road alignment in December 2018 and a new Princes Highway and Dignams Creek Road intersection is now open 200 metres south of the new Dignams Creek Bridge..

For the safety of road users and our workers, the speed limit on the Princes Highway may be reduced through the worksite at Dignams Creek. Stop/slow traffic control and temporary traffic lights may also be needed from time to time to keep the worksite safe. We will keep any delays to a minimum.
