Dunns Creek Road, Malua Bay set to reopen on September 18th

Dunns Creek Road has been closed to through traffic from the 25th of May to 18 September 2020 whilst woorks were carried out to the 1.4km section of road south of The Ridge Road, between 376 and 428 Dunns Creek Road, Malua Bay.

Commuters were still able to access Dunns Creek Road from either end but were unable to pass through the construction site while traffic controllers escorted vehicles to properties within the construction site when necessary. The four month closure was necessary to safely undertake the earthworks to realign and upgrade a 700-metre section of road In all Council is upgrading 4.35 km of Dunns Creek Road from The Ridge Road, Malua Bay to Woodlands Road, Woodlands saying "The project will improve safety on sections of the road and is part of our ongoing road reconstruction program to improve and maintain the road network for current and future generations."

Council advise that Dunns Creek Road, which connects George Bass Drive and Tomakin Road in the hinterland behind the coastal suburbs from Batemans Bay to Broulee, is a rural distributor that has achieved a higher than average increase in traffic over the past ten years. Subsequently, vehicle crashes have risen.

The road will be improved by:

  • realigning the curves north of Dunns Creek Bridge

  • widening the road to provide 3.25m lanes and 1.25m shoulders

  • marking road edge lines

  • installing retro reflective pavement markers on centre and edge lines

  • installing curve alignment markers and new curve advisory speed signs

  • improving drainage

  • installing guardrail.

The project will improve property access and road safety for motorists and cyclists.
