Project information


The Jervis Bay Road and Princes Highway intersection has the highest volume of vehicle movements on the highway between Nowra and the border with Victoria.

A safer and more reliable intersection will support pedestrians, cyclists, and public transport customers to travel safely.

The upgrade will:

  • improve safety for all transport users
  • reduce congestion
  • improve resilience
  • support pedestrians, cyclists and public transport users
  • grow regional economies including tourism and freight
  • Improve access to local roads

Project status

Following the Environmental assessment and community feedback on the Concept design, the Jervis Bay Road and Princes Highway intersection upgrade project has been approved for construction.  A Submissions Report which captures community feedback on the Concept design and the Environmental assessment is now available.

Early work is on track to start in late 2022, with transition to major construction in 2023. Work to upgrade the intersection will take about three years to complete, weather permitting.  

The intersection upgrade will include: 

  • widening the road to a four-lane divided highway, with two lanes in each direction 
  • building an overpass bridge over Jervis Bay Road 
  • building two roundabouts at the existing road level to enable safer access and improve traffic flow
  • building an access road to service properties located to the south-east of the intersection.

Next steps

The Detailed design contract for the project has been awarded to Arcadis Australia Pacific Pty Ltd and the next stage of design work has started. This will include finalising the design of the project before construction begins.

Early work is on track to begin in late 2022 and transition to major construction in 2023.
