MAY 2021Marulan bypass pavement rehabilitation project update

The Australian and NSW governments have provided $35 million to replace sections of the concrete pavement surface on the Hume Highway at Marulan.

Work on the project is progressing and in late 2020 Transport for NSW engaged local company, Divall's Earthmoving and Bulk Haulage, to recycle the old road surface so it can be used in the project.

We are working with Goulburn Mulwaree Council and the Environment Protection Agency to finalise planning and approvals.

We will keep the community updated on the progress of the project.

Project information

The Australian and NSW governments have provided a total of $35 million to replace sections of the concrete pavement surface on the Hume Highway at Marulan.

The Marulan bypass, which was built in 1986 as part of the Hume Highway upgrade, is 7.5 kilometres long and is located about 31km north of Goulburn.

Due to an increasing number of vehicles using the highway each year, the condition of the road has deteriorated and ongoing maintenance expenses are increasing.

To improve driving conditions for motorists the existing concrete pavement will be replaced with a flexible pavement with a thick asphalt surface.

  • a smoother driving experience for motorists
  • lower ongoing maintenance costs and requirements
  • more efficient and safer journeys
  • reduced wear and tear on vehicles
  • maintaining and improving road safety
  • improving freight productivity and reliability.

  • $35 million has been jointly allocated by the Australian and NSW Governments.
  • Construction documents are being finalised and the project will go out to tender later this year.

    An additional u-turn facility is being investigated for future maintenance work and to assist traffic management during work.

    Further concrete slab maintenance and asphalt repair work will be carried out on sections of the bypass which are outside of the project area.

    Noise and traffic studies will be carried out in the coming weeks to further understand noise and traffic impacts.

  • Before construction can start, several important milestones must be met. These include: traffic and noise studies, finalising construction documents, requesting tenders from qualified contractors for the construction and awarding the contract to the successful tenderer. Construction is planned to start in 2023, weather permitting.
