Transport for NSW is delivering safer and more reliable journeys on the South Coast by progressing the upgrade of the Princes Highway upgrade between Jervis Bay Road and Sussex Inlet Roads.
Cardno (NSW/ACT) Pty Ltd were recently appointed for the investigation and planning phase of the project, which will include reviewing existing data, carrying out additional studies and commencing strategic design work. A range of strategic options will be identified before finalising a preferred option which will be available for community display and feedback.
The Princes Highway and Island Point Road intersection upgrade project is underway. Details on this project can be found on the project webpage.
A proposed upgrade on the Princes Highway between Jervis Bay Road and Sussex Inlet Road would help transform communities, create better and more mobile regional centres, deliver a more resilient transport network, improve safety, ease traffic congestion and grow regional economies.
The upgrade would address the 126 crashes including 5 fatal crashes and 42 serious injury crashes on this section of highway in the five years from 2014 to 2018.
The strategic investigation and design phase of this project will include reviewing existing data, carrying out additional investigations and identifying a range of options. There will be opportunities for the community to have their say when a preferred option is identified. More details on the preferred option and timeframes will be shared as the project progresses.
