Moruya Bypass - Have your say

Transport for NSW is progressing with a bypass of Moruya and is now seeking feedback on the three shortlisted corridors – Purple, Orange and Yellow.

Transport identified a preferred strategic bypass corridor in May 2021. A mix of positive and negative feedback was received, as well as requests for further information on how the corridor option was selected. Transport has now released the Strategic Corridor Workshops Report (PDF, 4.28Mb) that documents the technical information, weighting and scoring across the shortlisted corridors.

Further technical reports used during the Strategic Corridor Workshops will shortly be released on the Project website including traffic, noise, flooding, biodiversity and landscape.

Have your say

Over the next two months Transport is seeking feedback on the Purple, Orange and Yellow corridors for the Moruya bypass.

Following the success of ‘Map my Comment’ during earlier engagement, Transport now welcome feedback on what the community like and don’t like about the three corridors. The community can also leave their written feedback on the three corridors by completing this form.

As part of the social and economic study for the project, Transport would also like to better understand how the community live and work around the Moruya town centre. The following two surveys have been created to inform our understanding and what aspirations the community has for the future.

Feedback closes 5 June 2022.

Flood Focus Group

Transport is establishing a flood focus group for the Moruya bypass. Similar groups were established in the planning phases of other projects, including Albion Park Rail bypass.

Transport know flooding is an important issue for the Moruya community and those who live on the existing floodplain. Transport invited community representatives to apply to join the flood focus group to give local residents the opportunity to understand the flood assessment process and provide feedback to assist the wider community and Transport as they continue to plan the design features of the bypass.

Registrations closed on 29 April 2022.

Once formed, the flood focus group will meet fortnightly from mid-May until late June 2022.
