JUN 2020Consultation summary report now available

In October 2019, we engaged with stakeholders, road users and the community to gain an understanding of peoples’ experiences living and travelling in and around Bulli and Thirroul town centres, their concerns about the existing road corridor and ideas about future transport needs.

The investigation aimed to identify constraints and issues including on-street parking, traffic queuing and delays in peak periods. The investigation and feedback from the community will help Transport identify options to reduce travel times, improve road safety and maintain the look and feel of both town centres.

We had a strong response, receiving a total of 2,539 comments on the interactive map, made by 735 community members, and 50 email responses. Following analysis, 3627 individual issues were identified across all the feedback received.

The consultation summary report (PDF, 2.2Mb) is now available.

Transport for NSW thanks everyone who took the time to provide feedback about their experiences travelling in and around Bulli and Thirroul town centres. The feedback and ideas received provide valuable input into the project development.

Project information

Bulli and Thirroul are experiencing increased vehicle numbers and demand for access to local centres and services.

The study area includes the Princes Highway and Lawrence Hargrave Drive from Hospital Road in Bulli to Mary Street in Thirroul, excluding Bulli Pass.

We asked the community and road users to provide feedback about experiences travelling in and around the Bulli and Thirroul town centres, and how this experience might be improved in the future. The consultation period has now closed and we thank those who took the time to provide comments.

Check out our community consultation map to find out what feedback people have provided about Bulli and Thirroul.

The project team is currently investigating key constraints and issues in each study area including on-street parking, traffic queuing and delays in peak periods.

Our investigation will identify options to:

  • reduce travel times
  • improve road safety
  • maintain the amenity of both town centres.


A summary of community feedback will be available once the study is completed.

Feedback from the community, road users and busineses we received in October and November 2019, along with feedback provided during consultation previously carried out by Wollongong City Council, will be used to give us a better understanding of customer needs to inform future improvements.

Once we identify options, we will bid for funding to further develop and deliver these solutions.

We will keep the community updated as the project progresses.
