Updates and announcements

The NSW Government has committed $960 million for improving the Princes Highway between Jervis Bay Road and Moruya.

Planning for improvements at the intersection of the Princes Highway and Jervis Bay Road will continue, with survey work to be carried out from next week.

The investigations represent preliminary planning work that will inform later works in this area.

The planned survey work at the intersection with Jervis Bay Road will measure ground features such as road and natural surfaces. The work will also investigate the position of utilities and property boundaries.

Changed traffic conditions will be in place while work is carried out on the Princes Highway on weekdays from 29 April to 17 May 2019 between 8am and 3pm, weather permitting.

Intermittent lane closures, traffic control and a reduced speed limit of 40 km/h will be in place during work hours for the safety of workers and motorists.

Motorists are advised to allow up to five minutes additional travel time and to follow the directions of signs and traffic control.

Project background

The intersection of the Princes Highway and Jervis Bay Road provides access to Huskisson, Vincentia and the surrounding Jervis Bay communities which are popular South Coast tourist destinations that see high traffic volumes during holiday periods.

The NSW Government is investigating potential improvements to the intersection.

Roads and Maritime Services collected traffic data at the Princes Highway and Jervis Bay Road intersection in November 2018 and over the peak 2018/19 summer holiday period.
This data is being used to carry out traffic modelling at the intersection and must be appropriately assessed before key findings and possible solutions can be determined. At this early stage, it is not yet known when the key findings will be available.

Next steps

The upgrade of the Princes Highway and Jervis Bay Road intersection is still in the early planning stages of work and we will continue to keep the community informed as investigations continue.
