Dignams Creek - Princes Highway upgrade

Major work for the Princes Highway upgrade at Dignams Creek is now complete.

The $45 million upgrade, 20 kilometres south of Narooma, has improved road safety by widening the current highway for about 800 metres and building a new two kilometre section to current highway standards. It also involved building new bridges over Dignams Creek and Dignams Creek Road.

Major work for the upgrade was completed two months ahead of schedule in April 2019.


Updates and announcements

April 2019

The $45 million Princes Highway upgrade at Dignams Creek has reached a major milestone with major work completed in time for the 2019 April school holidays and Easter long weekend.

Major work began in April 2017 and since then over 600,000 tonnes of earth has been moved across the project. Traffic began travelling on the new section of highway in December 2018 and progress in the past three months includes road resurfacing, revegetation work and the opening of the new Dignams Creek Road intersection.

Motorists can now expect a safer journey and improved travel times.

Work hours

Crews will remain on site for clean-up activities until mid 2019, weather permitting. This work will be carried out between 7am to 6pm, from Monday to Friday and 8am to 5pm on Saturdays.

We will give advance notice of any further work required outside these hours, including night work.

Traffic changes

For the safety of road users and our workers, the speed limit on the Princes Highway may be reduced through the worksite at Dignams Creek. Traffic control may also be needed from time to time to keep the worksite safe as we carry out clean-up activities in the coming months. We will keep any delays to a minimum.
