AUG 2021Consultation report

Between December 2020 and February 2021, Transport invited feedback from the community on a proposed corridor for a bypass of Picton. Transport has summarised all the feedback in a consultation report (PDF, 870Kb) which we encourage the community to view.

We thank everyone who provided feedback. We recognise the importance of progressing the proposed Picton Bypass as more vehicles travel between towns, such as Thirlmere, Tahmoor and the Illawarra region. Reviewing community and road users’ feedback has been an integral step in informing the corridor alignment, and better understanding the issues and opportunities in the area.

We will continue to work with the Wollondilly Shire Council and local stakeholders while progressing the proposal. The community will continue to be updated as the project progresses.

DEC 2020Have your say

Transport for NSW are seeking feedback on the recommended corridor for a bypass of Picton until Monday 22 February 2021.

For more information please see the December 2020 community update (PDF, 2.34Mb) and the Strategic Corridor Options Report (PDF, 3.84Mb).

In response to the evolving Coronavirus situation, Transport for NSW is following NSW Health advice and changing the way it approaches community consultation for important transport infrastructure projects.

It is important for the community to have their say on all transport infrastructure projects. This means consultation will be carried out in different ways to ensure the community can practice social distancing and limit the spread of Coronavirus.

Online Community Information Session

To ensure the health and safety of the community and our staff we will replace face to face community information sessions with an online information session on the NSW Roads Facebook page on 1 Februrary between 4pm and 4.30pm.

The online community information session is an opportunity to ask the project team questions and seek further information.

If you are not able to join the live session or would like to submit your questions in advance, please email the team at pictonbypass@transport.nsw.gov.au or call us on 1800 270 726.

We welcome all your feedback by Monday 22 February 2021.

The NSW Government has provided $3m for Transport for NSW (TfNSW) to investigate potential options for a future bypass of Picton. A proposed bypass would provide an alternate route for heavy vehicles by linking Thirlmere and Tahmoor with the Hume Motorway via Picton Road.

  • Reducing traffic congestion in Picton and improving amenity for the local community
  • Provide an alternative and more direct route between Remembrance Driveway and the Hume Motorway, via Picton Road.
  • Improving safety and increasing journey reliability for road users.
  • Improving safety during emergency events such as bushfire and flood.
