Changed Traffic Conditions Accessing Clyde Street From The Princes Highway
Motorists are advised of changed traffic conditions from next week at the intersection of the Princes Highway and Clyde Street at Batemans Bay.
Roads and Maritime Services Director, Southern Region, Sam Knight said Roads and Maritime will be carrying out utility upgrades, roadwork and other major activities as part of the Batemans Bay Bridge replacement project.
“To ensure the safety of workers and motorists while this important work is carried out, permanent traffic changes on the Princes Highway will be implemented south of the bridge at the intersection of Clyde Street,” Ms Knight said.
“From Monday, motorists will no longer be able to turn right from the Princes Highway into Clyde Street or cross the Princes Highway from Clyde Street.
“This change will also reduce congestion and improve traffic flow during peak holiday traffic.”
