Dunns Creek Road, road reconstruction

Project: Upgrading the road to improve safety

Cost: $1,228,800

Funding: NSW Government Safer Roads - Saving Lives on Country Roads program

Timeframe: October 2019 to October 2021

Dunns Creek Road winds through the forest


Council is upgrading 4.35 km of Dunns Creek Road from The Ridge Road, Malua Bay to Woodlands Road, Woodlands.

The project will improve safety on sections of the road and is part of our ongoing road reconstruction program to improve and maintain the road network for current and future generations.

Dunns Creek Road connects George Bass Drive and Tomakin Road in the hinterland behind the coastal suburbs from Batemans Bay to Broulee. The road is a rural distributor that has achieved a higher than average increase in traffic over the past ten years. Subsequently, vehicle crashes have risen.

The road will be improved by:

  • realigning the curves north of Dunns Creek Bridge
  • widening the road to provide 3.25m lanes and 1.25m shoulders
  • marking road edge lines
  • installing retro reflective pavement markers on centre and edge lines
  • installing curve alignment markers and new curve advisory speed signs
  • improving drainage
  • installing guardrail.

The project will improve property access and road safety for vehicles and cyclists.
