The NSW Berry to Bomaderry upgrade is one step closer to completion as the final stages of utility relocation work is underway in preparation for major work to begin on the highway upgrade later this year.
Member for Kiama Gareth Ward said the NSW Government provided $450 million for the project to improve traffic flow and road safety on the Princes Highway between Mullers Lane, Berry and Cambewarra Road in Bomaderry.
“When work is complete this section of road will be the final piece of more than 30 kilometres of upgraded highway between Gerringong and Bomaderry since 2012,” he said.
“Ausconnex has been engaged by Roads and Maritime to relocate electrical utility services in preparation for major work to start.
“There will be some intermittent impacts to electricity supply at some properties to complete the relocations and those residents will be contacted directly by Ausconnex,” he said.
Utility relocation work is planned to continue between Cambewarra Road, Bomaderry, and Croziers Road in Berry until August.
“Changed traffic conditions, including temporary traffic stoppages, will be in place until August to allow for the utility service relocation work to be carried out. These changes to traffic conditions are for the safety of workers and motorists and may affect travel times by up to ten minutes,” Mr Ward said.
