The safety upgrade at the intersection of the Princes Highway and Island Point Road at Tomerong is progressing with the Review of Environmental Factors now on display.
State Member for South Coast Shelley Hancock said $5 million was being invested to develop and construct a roundabout to improve road safety and reduce the likelihood of crashes at the intersection.
The intersection will provide improved access to St Georges Basin and Sanctuary Point, which are popular South Coast tourist destinations that see high traffic volumes during holiday periods," she said
Installing a roundabout at this location is aimed at treating the severity and incidence of crashes at the intersection.
It will manage approach speeds, reducing queue lengths and the number of potential points of conflict for road users, and improving traffic flow and intersection performance.
Traffic calming, line marking, improved signs and increased lighting will also be installed at the intersection."
The NSW Government has committed $960 to upgrading the Princes Highway south of Nowra and is focused on maintaining the Princes Highway while the upgrade is in progress, including the delivery of this upgrade.
The review will be on display at the Sanctuary Point Library and online at www.rms.nsw.gov.au/projects/
