Improvements between Figtree and Dapto
Roads and Maritime Services is planning for future improvements to the M1 Princes Motorway between Figtree and Dapto.
About this project
As part of the planning process, Roads and Maritime has begun a modelling exercise to assess the current and anticipated future performance of the M1 Princes Motorway between Wollongong and Dapto. The project will tie in with other Motorway projects and modelling undertaken for the Albion Park Rail bypass and the Mount Ousley interchange.
Once the current and anticipated future performance has been assessed, a range of scenarios and options will be tested to address performance challenges. Scenarios and options tested will aim to:
- Improve travel time and efficiency for motorists
- Improve freight accessibility into and out of the region including access to Port Kembla and heavy vehicle access to the Shoalhaven and South Coast
- Cater for traffic growth as a result of nearby development.
Following this, work can begin on preliminary designs and environmental investigations.
