Project information

The NSW Government is investing $275 million to improve safety and travel times on Nelson Bay Road. The duplication of Nelson Bay Road is being delivered in stages. Early work on the project to upgrade the intersection of Nelson Bay Road and Medowie Road and the intersection of Nelson Bay Road and Lemon Tree Passage Road has been completed. 

Transport for NSW is investing $26 million in the duplication of a one-kilometre section of Nelson Bay Road from Salt Ash to Bobs Farm.

This section will run from 900 metres east of Marsh Road at Salt Ash to 1.9 kilometres east of Marsh Road at Bobs Farm and deliver a safer and more efficient road for the 25,000 motorists who use it each day.

Transport for NSW has engaged Daracon to deliver this work.

This one-kilometre dual carriageway upgrade includes:

  • 3.5-metre travel lanes
  • 2.5-metre shoulders
  • a concrete median separation barrier
  • two connected retaining walls
  • utility relocations
  • fauna exclusion fencing to ensure wildlife is protected

The $26 million investment in the duplication of this one-kilometre section of Nelson Bay Road will improve safety, travel times and traffic flow for the 25,000 motorists who use this vital connection each day.

Daracon has been engaged to deliver the work on behalf of Transport for NSW.

Work commenced in January 2022 and is expected to be completed in late 2023, weather permitting.
