Berrima Road Deviation

Detailed design and environmental studies have now been completed and work has commenced on the multi-million dollar Berrima Road Deviation Project.

The project will involve construction of approximately 600 metres of new road including a new B-triple capacity roundabout at the intersection of Berrima Road and Taylor Ave, New Berrima.

    Contractors have already established a work site and entry. They will also be installing site safety fencing, construction signage and controls to ensure environmental standards are met.

    The site will then be prepared for earthworks and the importation of material from local sites to build the embankments required for erection of a bridge over the rail line.

    The southern embankment will be completed before the northern embankment.

  • Preliminary designs

    over 2 years ago
    Preliminary designs for the Berrima Road Deviation Project are expected to be placed on public exhibition by mid-year.

    The project will see Berrima Road diverted from the existing level crossing near the Boral Cement Works to a bridge over the train line further east. The existing T-junction intersection at Berrima Road and Taylor Avenue and the bend on the approach to the crossing from Moss Vale will also be removed from the route. These will be replaced with a B-triple truck capacity roundabout.
