Concept design

South Batemans Bay Link Road project

Transport for NSW is building the next stage of the South Batemans Bay Link Road which will connect the Eurobodalla Shire Council upgrade of Glenella Road with the Princes Highway. The project includes a new roundabout on the Princes Highway and a one kilometre upgrade of Glenella Road between the Princes Highway and Heron Road. The project will take pressure off Beach Road, relieve congestion in the Batemans Bay CBD and support future growth.
