The $630 million Albion Park Rail bypass project, which will extend the M1 Princes Motorway between Yallah and Oak Flats and cut out 16 intersections, is already 25 per cent complete.
The 9.8 kilometre bypass is scheduled for completion in 2022.
“Forty per cent of major earthworks are now complete and construction has started on six of the 13 bridges along the bypass, including twin bridges at Yallah,” says the Member for Kiama Gareth Ward.
“With these twin 28 metre long bridges, Yallah Road will become an underpass which will facilitate important local connectivity between Yallah and Haywards Bay as the populations in these areas grow.
“The Albion Park Rail bypass is just one of two major highway projects underway in my electorate, including the Berry to Bomaderry Princes Highway upgrade.”
The public is invited to attend the next drop-in community information session to find more about the project, or look at http://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/aprb
