The aim of the Project is to seal 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 connect the Snowy Mountain Highway (managed by RMS), and the 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 to be 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 within the 2019 calendar year.
This project is connect to Council's Community Strategic Plan through Outcome 2; Goal 3; Strategy 6.
