Latest news

Aug 2021 - Consultation report

Between December 2020 and February 2021, Transport invited feedback from the community on a proposed corridor for a bypass of Picton. Transport has summarised all the feedback in a consultation report (PDF, 870Kb) which we encourage the community to view.

For more information please see the December 2020 community update (PDF, 2.34Mb) and the Strategic Corridor Options Report (PDF, 3.84Mb).

In response to the evolving Coronavirus situation, Transport for NSW is following NSW Health advice and changing the way it approaches community consultation for important transport infrastructure projects.

It is important for the community to have their say on all transport infrastructure projects. This means consultation will be carried out in different ways to ensure the community can practice social distancing and limit the spread of Coronavirus.

Project information


The NSW Government has provided $3m for Transport for NSW (TfNSW) to investigate potential options for a future bypass of Picton. A proposed bypass would provide an alternate route for heavy vehicles by linking Thirlmere and Tahmoor with the Hume Motorway via Picton Road.


  • Reducing traffic congestion in Picton and improving amenity for the local community
  • Provide an alternative and more direct route between Remembrance Driveway and the Hume Motorway, via Picton Road.
  • Improving safety and increasing journey reliability for road users.
  • Improving safety during emergency events such as bushfire and flood.

Next steps

We will continue to keep the community updated as we progress the Picton Bypass Project.
