Kings Hwy works completed


Member for Bega Andrew Constance today announced work is now complete on a $5.7 million upgrade to improve road user safety on the Kings Highway east of Nelligen.

Mr Constance said the work was completed as part of the NSW Government’s $25 million allocation to improve safety on the Kings Highway.

“A 1.2 kilometre section of the Kings Highway has been realigned from Old Nelligen Road towards Batemans Bay to reduce the number and severity of crashes at this location,” Mr Constance said.

“Around 3,800 cars use this section of the Kings Highway each day.

“In the five years to December last year three crashes were recorded at this location, resulting in five injuries.

“Roads and Maritime Services engaged Eurobodalla Shire Council to design and carry out the work, which started in June last year.

“Work involved creating a new, straighter alignment, widening the road shoulders and installing safety barriers to prevent run off road crashes.

“The 80 km/h hour speed limit has been reinstated after the completion of work.

“A section of the old highway has also been converted into a safe police stopping bay and vehicle inspection area, further improving safety.”

Mr Constance said he would like to thank motorists for their patience while work was carried out. Media Release
