Work to resurface a section of the Kings Highway from Batemans Bay to East Nelligen will begin next week.

Work will take place from Monday, May 22 to Friday, May 26, from 7am to 6pm, weather permitting.

A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said the $800 000 works would increase skid resistance and provide a safer road surface on the two-kilometre stretch of highway.

The works will link two previously upgraded sections at Rotary Drive and east Nelligen.

Changed traffic conditions, including a reduced speed limit and temporary lane closure with alternating traffic flow, will be in place.
