Princes Highway Burrill Lake

Burrill Lake to Batemans Bay

Transport for NSW is delivering safer and more reliable journeys on the South Coast by progressing the upgrade of the Princes Highway upgrade between Burrill Lake and Batemans Bay.

Project information

AECOM Australia Pty Ltd were recently appointed for the investigation and planning phase of the project, which will include reviewing existing data, carrying out additional studies and commencing strategic design work. A range of strategic options will be identified before finalising a preferred option which will be available for community display and feedback.

The Princes Highway is a critical link between Sydney and the Illawarra Region with the NSW South Coast down to the Victorian border. It provides vital connections between towns and regional centres and is an important freight link. The Princes Highway connects key east-west road corridors and is a significant route for inter-regional business, tourism and leisure travel.

A proposed upgrade on the Princes Highway between Burrill Lake and Batemans Bay would help transform communities, create better and more mobile regional centres, deliver a more resilient transport network, improve safety, ease traffic congestion and grow regional economies.

The upgrade would address the 86 crashes including 2 fatal crashes and 18 serious injury crashes on this section of highway in the five years from 2014 to 2018.

The strategic investigation and design phase of this project will include reviewing existing data, carrying out additional investigations and identifying a range of options. More details on the preferred option and timeframes for next steps will be shared as the project progresses.
