Bulli Pass

This $30 million project is fully funded by the NSW Government. Construction
is scheduled to commence in the second half of 2009 and be completed by
mid 2011.

Background
The intersection of Lawrence Hargrave Drive and the Princes Highway at the foot of Bulli Pass is to be upgraded. This will improve safety at this intersection.
A cost effective and safer preferred option has been developed. Community feedback on the design of this option led to improved plans to manage the local area network. Details of the revised design are shown inside
this community update.

Benefits of the project

  • - Improved road safety.
  • - Reduced peak hour delays and queuing at the intersection.
  • - Reduced vehicle operating costs through improved traffic flow.
  • - Greater travel efficiency with free flowing traffic movements at the intersection and improved facilities for pedestrians and cyclists.
  • - A small footprint,minimising the impacts on the existing environment.
  • - A simple, cost effective solution that will allow early implementation.

Conjola Mountain

Project overview

On 13 December 2006 the Australian Government announced $10 million would be provided under the AusLink Strategic Regional Program to Kiama Municipal Council, representing the Southern Councils Group, towards improvements on the Princes Highway at Conjola Mountain.

The project is expected to cost $45 million and is jointly funded by the NSW and Australian governments. Background

The Princes Highway is the major north-south arterial transport route along the southern coast of NSW and provides the main road link for traffic from Sydney and Wollongong to the south coast.

Conjola Mountain is located approximately 46 kilometres south of Nowra on the Princes Highway. The section of the Highway proposed for improvement is approximately 3.5 kilometres in length with a steep and winding descent from the north to the existing narrow bridge at Conjola Creek.

Due to the road’s alignment and terrain, this section of the highway has a poor crash history with a total of 34 reported crashes between July 2001 and June 2006. The proposed realignment aims to improve safety along this section of
the highway.

Preliminary investigations

The RTA has completed preliminary investigations to assess the feasibility of a number of alignment options. The assessment included consideration of the environment, adjacent properties, cost effectiveness and constructability.

A preferred option has been selected for the realignment of the Princes Highway between the Bendalong Road intersection and the southern approach of a new Conjola Creek Bridge.

The proposal

The selected proposal involves a realignment of the Princes Highway from Bendalong Road to just south of a new Conjola Creek Bridge.The proposal will be delivered in two stages.

Stage 1: A new Conjola Creek Bridge and road approaches.

Stage 2: Conjola Mountain section – a realignment of the Princes Highway from Bendalong Road to the northern approaches of the new Conjola Creek Bridge.The proposal for Stage 2 also includes an additional lane to allow for overtaking on the steeper section of the road, and the provision of a median safety barrier.

Access to properties will be retained or improved as part of the proposal.

Wentworth Falls East

As part of the Great Western Highway upgrade at Wentworth Falls East, the existing two lane highway is being widened to a four lane divided highway from east of Tableland Road to Station Street.

Status

The RTA has completed the detailed design for the project. Tenders for the construction of the project were invited on 27 October 2008 and the contract was awarded to Fulton Hogan Pty Ltd in March 2009.

Funding

This project is jointly funded by the NSW and Federal governments.

Next steps

Highway construction commenced in May 2009.

Project features

  • - Widening the highway to four lanes with sealed shoulders.
  • - Upgrading Tableland Road to a ‘seagull’ intersection allowing for all turning movements.
  • - Providing a central median from east of Tableland Road to Station Street which will be landscaped between Tableland Road and Dalrymple Avenue (east).
  • - Provision for local road users by installing service roads in some locations and direct access driveways in others.
  • - Providing a one way service road linking Tableland Road to Shortland Street.

  • - Left in/left out only at Shortland Street.
  • - Left out only at Old Bathurst Road (east).
  • - Aligning Old Bathurst Road (west) and Dalrymple Avenue (east) to become one intersection with traffic signals and pedestrian crossings allowing for all turning movements.
  • - Improving the Nelson Avenue service road to provide a shared driveway.
  • - Raising the westbound carriageway and providing a 2.5 metre shoulder between Nelson and Dalrymple avenues to provide improved and safer driveway access for properties with no alternative street access.
  • - Providing an off-road cycleway/footpath along the westbound carriageway between Tableland Road and Station Street.
  • - Providing new traffic lights at the Dalrymple Avenue (west) intersection to allow for all turning movements.
  • - Providing sedimentation ponds at the corner of Allan Crescent and Railway Parade and on Sandbox Road to control stormwater run-off.
  • - Urban design and landscaping treatments to enhance both natural bushland and the township.

Camden Valley Way upgrade

Camden Valley Way is a major arterial road linking Liverpool, Camden, Narellan and Harrington Park in Sydney’s south west region.

There will be significant growth in future years with residential development in the South West Growth Centre.

In December 2005, the RTA completed the upgrade of Camden Valley Way to a four lane divided road from the M5/M7 interchange to Bernera Road, Prestons.
In 2007, the NSW Government committed $104 million over four years to continue upgrading Camden Valley Way to four lanes from Bernera Road, Prestons to Narellan Road, Narellan. Construction of the section from Bernera Road, Prestons to Cowpasture Road, Horningsea Park is currently scheduled to start in late 2009.

The remaining 14 kilometres of Camden Valley Way, from Cowpasture Road to Narellan Road, is proposed to be upgraded generally within the existing road corridor as indicated in this community update.

This upgrade will be undertaken in stages to reflect the development of land in the South West Growth Centre, and to provide road capacity for the growing population of Sydney’s south west.

The first stage to be constructed is proposed to be at the southern end of Camden Valley Way, from Narellan Road to Cobbitty Road, due to land releases in this area.

Timing of construction of future sections will depend on the pace of future land development in the area.
