14 APR 2020Community Consultation closed

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.

Next steps:

In the coming months we will review all feedback submitted and develop a consultation report summarising the issues, concerns and opportunities raised by the community and stakeholders during this consultation period.

The feedback provided will help inform our investigations as we progress.

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.

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.
