Monaro Palerang Roads Package

The NSW Government has invested in a $70 million program of works to improve a number of roads in the Monaro state electorate.

These upgrades are within the Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council (QPRC) local government area and include:

  • The duplication of Old Cooma Road, to improve alignment and capacity between Edwin Land Parkway and Googong Road.
  • The upgrade of four sections of Nerriga Road (MR92)
  • A new roundabout at the corner of  Malbon Street and Molonglo Street on the Kings Highway in Bungendore.

QPRC will manage the delivery of the work associated with the program.

Old Cooma Road - Stage 2

The Old Cooma Road – Stage 2 project involves the duplication of Old Cooma Road between Edwin Land Parkway and Googong Road to improve safety and traffic flow. It will include a 2.5 metre off road shared path for pedestrians and cyclists linking Queanbeyan to Googong.

Major construction is expected to start in early 2019 with the new road to be open to traffic by mid to late 2020.

Nerriga Road upgrades

This program of work involves safety upgrades to more than 11 kilometres of Nerriga Road in four sections: 

  • Cookanulla Road to Grants Road
  • Grants Road to Stewarts Crossing Road
  • Stewarts Crossing Road to Charleyong Bridge
  • Kings Highway/Nerriga Road intersection

Work includes both widening and sealing of unsealed sections with the aim of working toward a Higher Mass Limit route from Nowra to the Kings Highway at Braidwood.

Work on Nerriga Road has started. For more information visit the QPRC website.

New Bungendore roundabout on Kings Highway

This project includes a new roundabout at the corner of Malbon and Molonglo streets in Bungendore. The roundabout will reduce traffic congestion and increase safety for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists.

QPRC is currently working on the detailed design and aims to start work in mid 2019.
