Multiple October long weekend traffic changes

Motorists are advised of a number of traffic changes at construction sites between Wollongong and Batemans Bay over the October long weekend.

Most construction activities on the Albion Park Rail bypass site will stop at 2pm Friday 4 October and restart at 7am Wednesday 9 October to minimise impact to motorists.

Reduced speed limits will remain in place near work areas on the Princes Highway, Illawarra Highway, East West Link and Tongarra Road over the long weekend for the safety of road users.

Most work will stop on the Berry to Bomaderry upgrade at 6pm Thursday 3 October and restart at 7am Wednesday. Any minor work during this time will not affect highway traffic and an 80km/h speed limit will be in place for the length of the upgrade.

A temporary speed zone reduction to 80km/h will be in place on the southbound lane of the Princes Highway approaching the Jervis Bay Road intersection from 8am Friday to 7am Tuesday 8 October.

An Incident Response and End of Queue Management Crew will be deployed to Jervis Bay Road and the Princes Highway at Nowra and Ulladulla to manage traffic queues.

A reduced speed limit of 80km/h will be in place on the Kings Highway between Nelligen and Batemans Bay with traffic control on standby at the Batemans Bay Bridge Project. 

Traffic Controllers will also coordinate the movement of pedestrians across the Princes Highway pedestrian crossing in Milton between 9am and 3pm from Friday to Monday to allow more through time for vehicles.

Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions and to follow the directions of signs.

Transport for NSW thanks motorists for their patience during this time.
