Transport for NSW is upgrading the Princes Highway between Berry and Bomaderry. The $450 million project will improve safety, increase road capacity, improve traffic flow and deliver better and more reliable journeys on this section of the highway. The upgrade is scheduled for completion in 2022 and will be the final piece of more than 30 kilometres of highway upgraded between Gerringong and Bomaderry since work started in 2012.
JUN 2022Open to four lanes
The 10.5 kilometre Berry to Bomaderry upgrade is now open to four lanes of traffic with a signposted speed limit of 100km/h. Final asphalt work will resume later in the year and community and motorists will be notified of changed traffic conditions at that time.
JUN 2022View the latest project update
The project will open to four lanes of traffic for the full 10.5 kilometre upgrade following the completion of concrete medians and safety barrier. Remaining sections of the final wearing course will be laid later this year when the weather is warmer.More information
The new traffic lights and signs have been completed on the Princes Highway northbound approach to the Cambewarra Road/Moss Vale Road roundabout. Our latest project update (PDF, 9.3Mb) includes information on what we’ve been doing, opening to four lanes and final asphalt work.
JUN 2022Night work continues on the Princes Highway
Night work will continue to be carried out on the Princes Highway for line marking and maintenance works across both carriageways of the Princes Highway and up to the project’s boundary.More information
The work is being carried out at night for the safety of workers and road users and to avoid extended traffic delays during the day.
Work will continue throughout the month of June between 6pm and 6am, with completion expected by Thursday 30 June, weather permitting. Up to five nights of work will be carried out each week with no more than two consecutive nights at one location.
Major work started in September 2018. The NSW Government has engaged Downer Seymour Whyte Joint Venture (DSWJV) to build the upgrade.
Work on the upgrade will typically occur between 7am and 6pm on weekdays and between 8am and 1pm on Saturdays, excluding public holidays and weather permitting. The local community will be informed in advance if night work is required.
Work is scheduled for completion in 2022.
The Berry to Bomaderry upgrade will include the following key features:
- A 100km/h speed limit north of Abernethys Lane
- An overpass of the highway between Pestells Lane and Meroo Road
- An underpass at Devitts Lane and Morschels Lane for local road access
- An overpass of the highway between Strongs Road and Jaspers Brush Road
- Protected right turn bays to northbound and southbound u-turn bays
- A heavy vehicle inspection bay near Jaspers Brush
- A total of eight bridges over waterways
- Fauna friendly features in the bridge designs at Flying Fox Creek, Jaspers Brush Creek and Wileys Creek
- Increased road shoulder widths to three metres, where possible, with vehicle breakdown bays at regular intervals
- Modifications to local roads, including Strongs Road, Jaspers Brush Road, Morschels Lane, Devitts Lane, Pestells Lane and Abernethys Lane
- Relocation and upgrade of existing bus stops at Mullers Lane, Croziers Road, Strongs Road, Morschels Lane, Lamonds Lane and Boxsells Lane
- Drainage and flood mitigation structures.
The project will:
- Increase road capacity and improve traffic efficiency - will complete a minimum four-lane divided route between Sydney and Jervis Bay Road, south of Nowra and increase overtaking opportunities
- Improve safety - providing a median and barriers to separate opposing traffic flows and providing wide road shoulders
- Plan for future growth - supporting regional and local economic development
