Jigamy Farm access improvements - Princes Highway upgrade
The NSW Government provided $2.2m to improve the access to Jigamy Farm on the Princes Highway, 10 kilometres north of Eden.
About Jigamy Farm
Jigamy Farm is located on the shores of Pambula Lake at Broadwater, just off the Princes Hwy approximately 7km from Pambula and 9Km from Eden.
It is home to the offices of Eden Local Aboriginal Land Council, who built the Aboriginal Cultural Centre - Monaroo Bobberrer Gudu or "The Keeping Place".
The Keeping Place offers a community based centre for cultural events, meetings and functions, and provides important services to the Aboriginal community. It is also used for school visits to educate young persons about aboriginal culture and activities.
The improvements provided safer access into and out of Jigamy Farm and enhanced road safety for motorists travelling on the Princes Highway.
Construction began in September 2013 and was completed in September 2014.

- Shoulder widening on the Princes Highway at the entrance to Jigamy Farm to allow vehicles performing left-in and left-out turning movements
