Traffic lights to be switched on at upgraded Kings and Princes Highway intersection: October 1st

Motorists can expect improved safety and reduced congestion during the busy holiday period at the Kings and Princes Highway intersection at Batemans Bay with new traffic lights becoming operational this week.

The traffic lights will only operate when long queues are detected to reduce traffic delays from Thursday 1 October.

Signals will automatically respond during peak periods to enable a more balanced traffic flow and reduce queue lengths at the intersection.

This will improve journeys for motorists travelling between Canberra, Batemans Bay and other parts of the South Coast.

Dedicated left turn lanes for motorists travelling north from the Kings Highway and west from the Princes Highway were opened in June.

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

Transport for NSW thanks road users for their patience during project construction.
