OCT 2022Consultation Summary Report

Over the last two years more than 1300 submissions were received from the community on a bypass of Moruya. We thank the community for getting involved and having their say.

The community has told us they want a bypass that ensures access to the hospital, minimises impacts to flora and fauna, minimises impacts to property, and is cost-effective in delivering the best outcomes for the whole community.

We encourage you to view the full report (PDF, 9.46Mb) and explore the feedback in detail by using our new interactive dashboard.

Transport for NSW will conduct further design work for all three shortlisted corridors to better understand the opportunities and challenges that all three corridors present. The further design work will allow us to undertake a robust assessment of all three corridors against what is important to the community as well as the project’s goals and objectives including safety, resilience, liveability, connectivity and sustainability. It is anticipated this process will take six months.

Project information

The Princes Highway is a critical link between Sydney and the Illawarra Region with the NSW South Coast down to the Victorian border. It provides vital connections between towns and regional centres and is an important freight link. The Princes Highway connects key east-west road corridors and is a significant route for inter-regional business, tourism and leisure travel.

A bypass would unlock opportunities to improve the feel of Moruya town centre for the benefit of locals, pedestrians and businesses and complement the appealing, tourist-friendly experience of the town.
