Progress works along Nerriga Road showing widening and surface preparation
The Nerriga Road upgrade project involves upgrading four sections of the road, and has been funded by a $70 million grant from the NSW Government under the Monaro-Palerang Roads Package. The total funding package provides for the Nerriga Road upgrade, duplication of Old Cooma Road south of Queanbeyan and a roundabout at the corner of Malbon and Molonglo Sts in Bungendore.
The Nerriga Road project has been allocated $29 million. The upgrades consists of sealing 11.22km of unsealed road and upgrading the intersection of Nerriga Road and the Kings Highway. A further 4.7km may be sealed if budget permits.
The single lane bridge at Charleyong is also being replaced and this work is being completed by the NSW Roads and Maritime Service. The project has been awarded to SRG Civil and is expected to be opened in 2020.

The project includes four stages:

  • Stage 1 - Grants Road to Stewarts Crossing Road (5km) - completed December 2018
  • Stage 2 - Stewarts Crossing Road to Charleyong Bridge (3.1km) – completed October 2019 (except for approximately 300m that is part of the new Charleyong Bridge approaches that will be completed after the bridge is done)
  • Stage 3 - Durran Durra Range, Brightside Road to Grants Road (3km) – preliminary works are expected to commence in January 2020. This stage is impacted by the lack of water in the Braidwood area, A start date for main construction is to be confirmed.
  • Stage 4 - Kings Highway/Nerriga Road intersection (800m) - to commence mid-2020 and to be completed by December 2020.                                                                                                                                                                   

If savings are made across the entire project then a fifth stage will be included. This would include a 4.7km unsealed section known as Ningee Nimble Creek.
