Drivers at Termeil Creek on the Princes Highway south of Ulladulla are now cruising smoothly on a straight, wide 1.6 kilometre section of new bitumen.
Watch the video – five seconds into it you can see the old road off to the left, now scraped back to a dirt surface.The highway has been upgraded to a 100 km/h standard with the removal of nasty bends north of the old Termeil Creek bridge.
Watch the second video shot from the old road – the landscaping shows the height added to the improved road alignment.
The work includes safety upgrades to residential property accesses and the relocation of the entrance to Meroo National Park at Blackbutt Road.
Motorists were diverted to the new section on May 9.
Work started last year as part of a $21 million project to improve safety and travel times.
The new section initially has traffic control in place and a reduced speed limit to 60 km/h to enable safe completion of the project.
Roads and Maritime Services says final work including landscaping and new line marking is due to be completed in early June.
