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.

MAR 2021Commonly asked questions

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 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

A grade separated interchange, or flyover, with roundabouts on either side was identified as the preferred option for the Jervis Bay Road and Princes Highway intersection upgrade in November 2020.

This decision followed a thorough planning, investigation and development process including a value management workshop attended by key stakeholders and technical specialists. It was determined the preferred option would achieve the proposal objectives, was the safest option and would provide the best results for congestion, resilience and connectivity compared to other options assessed.

The project Review of Environmental Factors (REF) and concept design is now available for viewing by the public. Community feedback on the REF and concept design is open until Sunday 18 July 2021.

If you would like to provide feedback click here to head to our interactive portal. You can also provide feedback by calling 1800 570 562 or emailing jervisbayroad@transport.nsw.gov.au.

Transport for NSW will collate and consider the submissions received during the public display of the REF and prepare a submissions report.

Feedback received will help further refine the design of the proposal and we will keep the community updated as the proposal progresses. Early work is on track to start in late 2022. Submissions must be received by Sunday 18 July 2021.
