Illawarra-Shoalhaven (incl. Wollongong)

Already delivered...

Roads

  • We’re improving the conditions of major highways to make them safer and cut travel time - we recently opened the Berry Bypass six months ahead of schedule with the project creating around 550 jobs. The project revoved steep climbs, sharp bends and congestion through Berry and Foxground, with travel savings to motorists of up to seven minutes.
  • Constructing the new 290m Burrill Lake Bridge on the Princes Highway, just south of Ulladulla. Construction of this project was complete in 2018. The new bridge provides a lake crossing above the one in 100 year flood level, improved safety with two new intersections and has made it safer for pedestrians and cyclists.
  • We’ve improved public transport infrastructure in the Illawarra and Shoalhaven areas including new transport interchanges at Albion Park and Dapto, accessibility upgrades at Austimner, Gerringong and Mittagong, and more free commuter car parking at Kiama, Moss Vale, Oak Flats and Thirroul.
  • We’ve built a brand new train station at Shellharbour Junction to support the growing area.
  • In 2014, additional carriages were added on the South Coast Line to alleviate crowding. The majority of peak services are now eight carriages long.
  • In 2016, timetable improvements were introduced to cut travel times for Austinmer Station customers and provide more seats.

Delivering on the plan (future)

Roads

  • Upgrading the Princes Highway through a number of key projects from Sydney all the way down to Bega. The benefits will include safety upgrades, better travel times, increase the number of lanes and provide better pedestrian and cyclist links.

Pubic Transport

  • We have a new intercity train fleet coming from 2019, providing a safer, more comfortable journey for you when travelling from Sydney to the Central Coast and Newcastle. The new fleet will be available to customers in the Blue Mountains from mid-2020 and the South Coast from 2021. The new trains will have improved accessibility, wider seats with arm rests, charging stations, digital signage, CCTV and air conditioning.
