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.

In addition to realigning the road the existing rail level crossing will also be replaced with a rail overbridge, providing safer and more efficient access to the Hume Highway.

Deviation of Berrima Road is the latest stage of the $82 million Moss Vale Enterprise Corridor scheme, designed to attract new business to our Shire.

The following designs and studies were prepared and made available for public comment by 30 April 2017:

Construction of the Berrima Road Deviation Project commenced in January 2018.

Q&A

  • WHY BUILD A BRIDGE OVER A RAIL LINE WHICH I AM TOLD SERVICES THE CEMENT WORKS WHICH BORAL HAS SAID THEY WILL CLOSE IN NEXT FEW (3 ?) YEARS.

    sweep asked over 1 year ago

    Thanks for the question. The work is not being done to service the cement works. We believe that even if they were to close, the rail line would still exist and similar to Willow Vale, remain available for future use.

    Wingecarribee Shire Council endorsed an Essential Infrastructure Plan in June 2007 to guide the coordinated and staged delivery of service and road infrastructure for the Moss Vale Enterprise Zone. The provision of safer and more efficient access between the Hume Highway and the Moss Vale was a key improvement identified for the employment generating zone.

    Since this time a number of improvements have been made between Moss Vale and the Hume Highway.

    Visit www.wsc.nsw.gov.au/development/developer-contributions-plans-development-servicing-plans/section-94-and-94a-developer-contributions-plans/moss-vale-enterprise-corridor-section-94-plan for further information. You can review the various recommended improvements in an overall road network plan which is overlaid on an aerial photo or check out the Works Schedule listed from page 44 of the Moss Vale Enterprise Corridor Section 94 Plan.

    A deviation of Berrima Road was included in the Infrastructure Plan so Council sought funding for this work and in May 2015 it was announced that $4.6million had been awarded through the Federal Government’s National Stronger Regions Fund.

    The deviation is designed to provide heavy vehicles with safer and more efficient access to our Shire. It will also provide a number of benefits for local residents, not least the removal of a level crossing, high standard road alignments and an improved intersection with Taylor Avenue.

  • Why is this project being undertaken while MOSS VALE is hampered because the planed by-pass is not being built.? Business in Moss Vale is crying out for relief from through traffic especially heavy vehicles!

    Council officers have been investigating funding opportunities for the Moss Vale bypass and we welcome your feedback.

    The Moss Vale by-pass was included in our contributions plans for the Moss Vale Enterprise Corridor. Visit http://www.wsc.nsw.gov.au/development/developer-contributions-plans-development-servicing-plans/section-94-and-94a-developer-contributions-plans/moss-vale-enterprise-corridor-section-94-plan for further information. You can review the various recommended improvements in an overall road network plan which is overlaid on an aerial photo or check out the Works Schedule listed from page 44 of the Moss Vale Enterprise Corridor Section 94 Plan. There are also specific plans for sections provided in PDF format.

    Stage 1 of the Moss Vale by-pass (connect Beaconsfield Rd to Suttor Rd, bridge over railway and connection to Lackey Rd) has been identified through modelling as the highest priority.  It is however a very expensive project with much land acquisition and a very high bridge required to go over the railway line.

    We are very conscious that the main thoroughfare through Moss Vale is congested at peak times and are working with Roads and Maritime Services, the road authority for Argyle Street, to identify ways to alleviate the problem in the short term.

    If you would like to formally support Wingecarribee Shire Council’s funding submissions and presentations to Roads and Maritime Services please write to us via email mail@wsc.nsw.gov.au or PO Box 141, Moss Vale 2577.

    Regards.

  • Who will be the benefit from this proposal and who made the application?

    JAR asked about 2 years ago

    Hi there, thanks for the question.

    Wingecarribee Shire Council endorsed an Essential Infrastructure Plan in June 2007 to guide the coordinated and staged delivery of service and road infrastructure for the Moss Vale Enterprise Zone. This plan was carefully reviewed with extensive traffic modelling and detailed analysis completed in 2009 and 2010. The provision of safer and more efficient access between the Hume Highway and the Moss Vale was a key improvement identified for the employment generating zone.

    Since this time a number of improvements have been made between Moss Vale and the Hume Highway.
