Apr 2022 - Detailed design tender announced
The detailed design contract has also been awarded to Arcadis Australia Pacific Pty Ltd and detailed design work has started. This work will include finalising the design of the project before construction starts.
Submission report released
Transport received 146 submissions on the concept design and environmental assessment in mid-2021. Feedback raised a number of considerations around traffic and safety impacts as well as other matters related to property, biodiversity and Aboriginal heritage.

Improvements following design changes and community feedback
The concept design includes a grade separated interchange, or flyover, with roundabouts on either side of Jervis Bay Road.
Following a review of feedback and more design work, important refinements have been made to the project.
- Better connection with the planned Princes Highway upgrade further south of the intersection
- Extension of the northbound on-ramp and merge length for safer entry to the Princes Highway
- Safer access to local roads including Old Princes Highway and Willowgreen Road
- Changes to improve wildlife connectivity.

Mar 2021 - Commonly asked questions
We have responded to commonly asked questions about the project, including what happens next. Check out the February 2021 frequently asked questions (PDF, 498Kb).
We are analysing the community feedback received late last year and preparing a concept design and environmental assessment for the project. These will be on display for community feedback in 2021. Work on the intersection upgrade is on track to start in late 2022.
Nov 2020 - Preferred option identified
A grade separated interchange, or flyover, was identified as the preferred option in November 2020 and displayed for community consultation. Consultation closed on Sunday 20 December 2020.
In consultations in March 2020, the community told us safety for transport users and less congestion are key priorities for an intersection upgrade. Transport investigated a range of options and determined the preferred option would be the safest option and provide the best results for congestion, resilience and connectivity compared to other options assessed.
Check out the community update (PDF, 409Kb) to view the preferred option.

Aug 2020 - Consultation report and design contractor announced
We have moved to the next phase of design of the Jervis Bay Road intersection upgrade, by releasing a consultation report following community feedback earlier this year and engaging Arcadis Australia Pacific Pty Ltd to undertake concept design and environmental assessment for the project.
Throughout the recent consultation period, the community told us what they value most when it comes to an upgraded intersection, with 62 per cent of respondents most valuing safety and 33 per cent prioritising reduced congestion.
View or download the consultation report (PDF, 10.9Mb).
We will consider all feedback and concerns alongside further traffic and transport modelling and environmental and field studies to help identify a preferred option. A preferred option will be identified and announced later this year.
