The intersection

Jervis Bay Road and Princes Highway intersection upgrade at Falls Creek

Transport for NSW is delivering safer and more reliable journeys on the South Coast by progressing with the intersection upgrade as part of the Princes Highway upgrade.

The intersection has the highest volume of vehicle movements on the highway between Nowra and the border with Victoria and has been the location of 15 crashes in the past five years, resulting in six serious and 11 minor injuries. A safer and more reliable intersection is our priority.

We have responded to commonly asked questions about the project, including what happens next. Check out the February 2021 frequently asked questions (PDF, 498Kb).

We are analysing the community feedback received late last year and preparing a concept design and environmental assessment for the project. These will be on display for community feedback in 2021. Work on the intersection upgrade is on track to start in late 2022.

NOV 2020

NOV 2020Preferred option identified

A grade separated interchange, or flyover, was identified as the preferred option in November 2020 and displayed for community consultation. Consultation closed on Sunday 20 December 2020.

In consultations in March 2020, the community told us safety for transport users and less congestion are key priorities for an intersection upgrade. Transport investigated a range of options and determined the preferred option would be the safest option and provide the best results for congestion, resilience and connectivity compared to other options assessed.

Check out the community update (PDF, 409Kb) to view the preferred option.

For more information on how the preferred option was selected, read the preferred strategic corridor option report (PDF, 2.83Mb) and our Frequently Asked Questions (PDF, 532Kb).

On Friday 4 December, the project team hosted an online Q&A to answer questions on the preferred option. Watch Program Director, Paul Vecovski and Project Manager, Matthew Burns discuss the project and before having your say by Sunday 20 December.

AUG 2020

AUG 2020Consultation report and design contractor announced

We have moved to the next phase of design of the Jervis Bay Road intersection upgrade, by releasing a consultation report following calls for community feedback earlier this year and engaging Arcadis Australia Pacific Pty Ltd to undertake concept design and environmental assessment for the project.

Throughout the recent consultation period, the community told us what they value most when it comes to an upgraded intersection, with 62 per cent of respondents most valuing safety and 33 per cent prioritising reduced congestion.

View or download the consultation report (PDF, 10.9Mb).

We will consider all feedback and concerns alongside further traffic and transport modelling and environmental and field studies to help identify a preferred option. A preferred option will be identified and announced later this year.

Project information

We invited community feedback on three intersection treatment options. View the consultation report (PDF, 10.9Mb) that assesses all feedback and concerns raised.

Options included fly-overs (grade separation), roundabouts and traffic signals. View the options (PDF, 554Kb) and the strategic options report (PDF, 1.02MB).

A preferred option has not been finalised. We will work with Arcadis Australia Pacific Pty Ltd to develop options further, following community feedback and ongoing environmental and traffic studies.

A preferred option will be identified and announced later this year.

Once a preferred option is identified, an environmental assessment will be carried out. The concept design and environmental assessment will then be placed on display for community feedback.
