Transport for NSW (TfNSW, commonly known as RMS) is progressing with plans for the proposed bypass of Moruya and has identified a preferred strategic bypass corridor.
The proposed route is around 8 kilometres in length, starting near Shelley Road, running parallel and to the east of the existing highway to the Larrys Mountain Road intersection. From Larrys Mountain Road, the corridor veers further east with a new bridge crossing of the floodplain and Moruya River about 2 kilometres east of the existing bridge. South of the Moruya River, the preferred strategic corridor crosses over South Head Road and continues south to re-join the existing highway.
The preferred strategic corridor would provide connections to the local traffic network at the northern end of the corridor near the North Moruya Industrial Estate and southern end near Mountain View Road.
TFNSW will need to acquire land by agreement or by compulsory process in accordance with the Land Acquisition (Just Terms Compensation) Act 1991 (Just Terms Act) so they can carry out construction. Property owners affected by the bypass project where there is to be acquisition of some of their land are entitled to compensation and the amount of compensation is subject to many factors. TfNSW will be contacting property owners and tenants who are directly affected in due course, but it is advisable to have legal representation beforehand to understand the amount of acquisition compensation that you may be entitled to. Rural land acquisitions are complex due to many different uses of the land and compensation can be significant where it impacts on farming or other business.
