Transport for NSW is delivering safer and more reliable journeys on the South Coast by progressing the Milton Ulladulla bypass as part of the Princes Highway upgrade.
MAR 2020Community consultation
We are currently seeking feedback on the identified corridor for the Milton Ulladulla bypass shown in the Shoalhaven Local Environmental Plan. We are also here to listen to communities to understand your experiences travelling to and along the Princes Highway in the Milton Ulladulla area.
Although a corridor has been identified, a preferred corridor for the proposed Milton Ulladulla bypass has not been decided. A preferred route and features of the proposed bypass will be determined once we've considered the community's feedback and carried out further investigations.
Update on our planned drop in session events
Transport for NSW is following NSW Health advice relating to social distancing and has moved face to face community information sessions for the projects online.

The Princes Highway is a critical link between Sydney and the Illawarra Region with the NSW South Coast down to the Victorian border. It provides vital connections between towns and regional centres and is an important freight link. The Princes Highway connects key east-west road corridors and is a significant route for inter-regional business, tourism and leisure travel.
A Milton and Ulladulla bypass would significantly reduce travel time and congestion, particularly in holiday periods.
It will also increase road safety after 85 crashes were recorded in the existing highway corridor through Milton and Ulladulla in a five-year period to 2018.
A bypass would provide opportunities to enhance the appeal of Milton and Ulladulla town centres for the benefit of locals and visitors to the region.
In early 2018 we consulted with Milton and Ulladulla communities to understand their concerns about local traffic and transport in their area. Feedback included concerns for pedestrian safety, congestion issues, speed limits, the benefits of a bypass, impacts to local businesses during peak holiday periods and access to local roads. For more information view the Milton and Ulladulla Traffic Study webpage.
The study will help shape our commitment to maintain the existing Princes Highway while the bypass is in development.
The project team is currently seeking feedback on the identified corridor for the Milton Ulladulla bypass in the Shoalhaven Local Environmental Plan. We are also asking to hear about experiences travelling along the Princes Highway through Milton and Ulladulla. Feedback will allow concerns and queries to be considered before developing the project further.
A summary of community feedback will be developed once consultation closes. This will inform our planning and concept design of the proposed bypass. We will keep the community updated as the project progresses.
