Motorists on the South Coast can look forward to safer journeys with early work to begin next week on the $30 million South Batemans Bay Link Road project.
Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Paul Toole said the project will create a safer and more efficient connection between South Batemans Bay and the Princes Highway.
“The work will deliver a new roundabout and new lanes on the Princes Highway as well as linking Glenella Road,” Mr Toole said.
“This project will take pressure off Beach Road, relieve congestion in the Batemans Bay CBD and support future growth.”
Member for Bega Andrew Constance said the project will provide a much needed economic stimulus to the South Coast, which is still dealing with the ongoing effects of COVID-19 and its bushfire recovery.
“Most importantly, the project will support 30 jobs, as well as increase access and capacity to support future growth for all our South Coast villages,” Mr Constance said.
“We’ve listened to the feedback from the community and design plans will be released shortly, with major work due to begin by October.”
Early work, including moving water and telecommunications utilities to allow construction to start, will begin on Wednesday 11 August and will have minimal impacts on road users.
Transport for NSW will continue to keep the community informed as they move into the next stage of the project.
