Milton Ulladulla bypass consultation period extended

The consultation period for the Milton Ulladulla bypass has been extended into 2021 to allow the community further time to engage with the project while more detailed traffic data collection is carried out over the busy holiday season.

Transport for NSW Regional Director South, Sam Knight said the consultation period will now run until Sunday 14 February due to the high level of interest in the project.

“I thank community members who have so far had their say on the preferred strategic corridor option for the bypass, with more than 1000 submissions received via online survey, email, and post,” Ms Knight said.

“Transport for NSW will carry out additional road data collection throughout Milton, Ulladulla, Burrill Lake and Lake Tabourie over the summer holiday period to assist in understanding further how traffic moves through this area.

“We recognise Milton, Ulladulla, Burrill Lake and nearby communities are popular tourism spots and will be reviewing how the anticipated increase in visitor numbers impacts the transport network.”

Princes Highway Program Director Paul Vecovski said community feedback has so far focused on why the preferred strategic corridor option was chosen and what effects a bypass will have on traffic through local towns.

“Transport for NSW has compiled a table that shows how shortlisted corridor options were assessed and why the preferred strategic corridor option has been selected,” Mr Vecovski said.

“The preferred strategic corridor for the Milton Ulladulla bypass provides greater connection to town centres when compared to west-of-Burrill Lake bypass options, enabling more traffic to use the bypass during weekday and peak holiday periods while making day-to-day local journeys in and around town centres safer and more reliable.

“The location of northern and southern connections to the Princes Highway and the local road network is subject to further investigation and Transport for NSW is currently seeking feedback from the community to inform the next stage of the planning process.”

The need for further highway upgrades south of the bypass will be considered as part of the Burrill Lake to Batemans Bay upgrade project.

More information on how the highway upgrade would improve safety and efficiency for transport users south of the bypass will be available in 2021.

For more information on how the preferred option was selected view the preferred strategic corridor option report at nswroads.work/miltonulladullabypass and at Ulladulla Library.

The community is invited to provide their feedback by online survey via princeshighway.nsw.gov.au, email (princeshighway@transport.nsw.gov.au) and phone (1800 719 759).

Forms and a submissions box are available for written feedback at Ulladulla Library.
