A newly released video of the planned Shoalhaven River bridge gives motorists their best view yet of what will be built.
The video comes as Transport for NSW releases the detailed design and urban design and landscape plan for the bridge.
The new bridge will provide four lanes for motorists travelling north, with the current three-lane northbound bridge changed to accommodate southbound traffic.
The flyover video offers a birds-eye view of of the bridge, enabling people to see how the intersections will work as well as getting a good sense of how the pedestrian and cyclist access is laid out.
"It's an amazingly detailed animation which really shows how our community will be transformed by this project," said Kiama MP Gareth Ward said.
"We're still inviting the community to provide any comments they have on the projects, but for the most part this is the final picture of this game-changing $342 million project."
The video shows that the southern side of the bridge will feature three lanes in each direction for around 800 metres.
On the northbound side the Princes Highway approach will also be upgraded with work to take place on several intersections.
There have been several changes to the plans as a results of community feedback in the concept stages.
These include a new roundabout on Illaroo Road at Fairway Drive to improve access to and from the northern foreshore and boat ramp and a left-turn only lane into Pleasant Way
Other changes include providing a pedestrian-activated crossing at Illaroo and Bridge roads.
"This is really about locking in those final components so that the community can see exactly how the finished product will look - and it looks fantastic," said South Coast MP Shelley Hancock.
The urban design and landscape plan looks at how the new bridge connects with its wider environment.
One of the key changes here is the increased retention of trees along the Princes Highway to reduce the visual impact of the road.
"The urban design vision focuses on minimising disturbances to the existing riverfront and urban settings, allowing the landscape and its scenery to dominate," the plan stated.
"To achieve this, it is important to mitigate any impacts along the river foreshore as well as limit the removal of established vegetation, particularly those skyline trees along the ridgelines and tops of cuttings."
Both the detailed design and the urban design and landscape plan can be viewed online at the project page of the RMS website or by appointment at the Nowra Bridge project site office Community Display Centre, 14 Moss Street, Nowra.
