The NSW Government is investing $275 million to improve safety and travel times on Nelson Bay Road including duplicating the road from Williamtown to Bobs Farm and early work to upgrade the Nelson Bay Road and Lemon Tree Passage Road intersection and the Nelson Bay Road and Medowie Road intersection.
Roads and Maritime Services is carrying out preliminary planning and investigation work on the project to duplicate Nelson Bay Road from Williamtown to Bobs Farm. Investigation work includes site investigations by environmental and Aboriginal heritage specialists.
We will also be monitoring traffic movements and surveying the road corridor, property boundaries, driveways and footpaths. This preliminary planning and investigation work will be ongoing over the coming months.
For more information about the project view the April 2019 - Preliminary planning and investigations notification.
The Williamtown to Bobs Farm duplication involves two sections:
- Williamtown to Salt Ash
- Salt Ash to Bobs Farm
The key features are:
- two lanes in each direction
- improved intersection access
- improved shoulders for cyclist
- minimum 80km/h design.
Two primary route alignment options are being considered for both sections of the project.
The potential route alignments that are being considered are shown on the map below.
For more information about the project view the September 2019 community update - Have your say.
We will continue to keep stakeholders and the community informed as planning progresses.
