Roads and Maritime Services has carried out a traffic and transport study of the Princes Highway through Milton and Ulladulla.
JUL 2018Community feedback
Roads and Maritime sought feedback from the community and stakeholders on their experience using the highway through Milton and Ulladulla in December 2017 and January 2018.
Thank you to members of the community who took the time to provide feedback during the submission period.
These comments have been considered as part of the broader study and will help to inform potential future improvements. View or download the summary of the identified key community concerns (PDF, 1.22Mb).
The Princes Highway Corridor strategy identified that a further study of the Princes Highway through Milton and Ulladulla was required to inform future planning.
The study will be conducted between Corks Lane, just north of Milton, and Canberra Crescent, south of Ulladulla, and will be used to assess the performance of the highway and identify current and future challenges faced by all road users.
Roads and Maritime sought feedback from the community about their experience using the highway through Milton and Ulladulla in December 2017 and January 2018.
A total of 418 comments were received from 204 users, including:
- 135 local residents
- 38 motorists
- 16 local business owners
- 2 cyclists.
Feedback included the following topics:
- The need to consider pedestrian and cycling connectivity across the study area
- Speed limit and safety concerns
- Community and business impacts during holiday peak periods
- Management of pedestrian crossings within town centres and impacts to traffic movement
- Capacity of several intersections along the corridor
- Need for improved accessibility and ability to egress from local roads
- Impacts of on-street parking and availability within town centres
- Restricted visibility and alignment concerns
- Need for bypass and impacts of holiday traffic
- Need to consider infrastructure requirements in locations with high number of vulnerable users such as adjacent to school, hospital and aged care residence.
The responses provided valuable insight into customer experiences and needs, and identified several locations requiring further assessment in relation to capacity constraints, pedestrian and cyclist accessibility, safety and parking impacts.

The findings of the study will provide a basis for Roads and Maritime to seek funding for network improvements that will optimise the safe & efficient operation of the road network in Milton and Ulladulla.
A number of initiatives have been identified for investigation. These include:
- Intersection safety and performance improvements along the Princes Highway at:
- Myrtle Street, Milton

- Gordon Street, Milton
- the pedestrian crossing, Milton
- Golf Avenue, Mollymook

- Access improvements at Pitman Avenue, Ulladulla
- Opportunities for increased pedestrian and cycle separation from traffic
Roads and Maritime will continue to investigate a bypass of Milton and Ulladulla in the 0 – 10 year timeframe, a Regional NSW initiative identified in the Future Transport 2056 Strategy.
A number of initiatives have been committed to for delivery in the short term. These include:
- Speed zone changes within Milton and south of Pitman Avenue
