The aim of the Project is to seal over 7kms on West Kameruka Road. One of the key outcomes of the Project is to make the Shire a more access friendly place for all residents and visitors to the area, which aligns with the Community Strategic Plan 2040 – Outcome 2- Employment and Learning opportunities:
"Goal 3: Strategy 6 – Collaborate with relevant parties to develop and enhance the economic opportunities provide by……East-West freight corridor…”
The Project will upgrade the connection between the Snowy Mountain Highway (managed by NSW Roads and Maritime Services) and Candelo-Bega Road. It will allow a more direct route between the Snowy Mountains Highway in the north of the Shire enabling access to Cooma and Canberra markets, and the Princes Highway further south providing access to the southern parts of the Shire.
The Project is entirely funded by a $3.5 million grant that has been received from the NSW Government for the 2017-18 Fixing Country Roads & Bridges Construction Stream.
Bega Valley Shire Council will endeavour to complete the construction phase early in the 2020 calendar year.
This Project is connected to Council's Community Strategic Plan through Outcome 2; Goal 3; Strategy 6.
