We have assessed community feedback received during the recent consultation period for the Milton Ulladulla bypass. A total of 692 submissions were received from individuals, community groups and government representatives via emails, phone calls and comments on the online consultation map.

We would like to thank everyone who considered the project and provided their feedback during the consultation period. The feedback received will be used during our investigations to develop and refine potential bypass corridor options prior to identifying a preferred bypass corridor.

From 16 March to 13 April we sought your feedback on the identified corridor for the Milton Ullladulla bypass shown in the Shoalhaven Local Environmental Plan and asked to hear about how you carry out your journeys on the Princes highway through Milton and Ulladulla.

We would like to thank the community for participating and providing their feedback during this development phase of the project. You can still view comments submitted via our interactive map.

Project information

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.

In March and April 2020 we sought community feedback on the identified corridor for the Milton Ulladulla bypass in the Shoalhaven Local Environmental Plan and asked to hear about experiences travelling along the Princes Highway through Milton and Ulladulla.

The feedback received will be considered during the strategic investigation stage to help develop and refine potential bypass corridor options prior to identifying a preferred bypass option.

The community feedback received will help inform our planning and strategic design of the proposed bypass. We will keep the community updated as the project progresses.
