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 will improve road safety by widening the current highway for about 800 metres and building a new two kilometre section to current highway standards. It will also include a new bridge over Dignams Creek. The upgrade is expected to be completed by mid 2019, weather permitting.

Roads and Maritime Services has appointed York Civil to build the $45 million Princes Highway upgrade at Dignams Creek. Work on the upgrade started in April 2017.

Major construction work, including the clearing of vegetation and earth works, has started toward the northern and southern ends of the project.

Work hours

Work will be carried out between 7am to 6pm, from Monday to Friday. Work is also currently being carried out between 8am and 1pm on Saturdays. We will give advance notice of any work required outside these hours.

Traffic changes

The speed limit on the Princes Highway will be reduced through the worksite at times. Stop/slow traffic control may be needed from time to time to keep the worksite safe. We will keep any delays to a minimum.

Stop/slow traffic control is currently in place to allow for the safe removal of vegetation close to the highway. We will aim to keep delays to a minimum, however during work times, delays of up to 10 minutes may be experienced. We will ensure the school bus is not affected by this work.
