The project is due for completion by October 2022, but there will be a break in construction during the school holiday period.

It has been made possible with funding from the Federal Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure, and Black Spot programs.

The detailed design for the reconfiguration, realignment and upgrade of the Sapphire Coast Drive and Berrambool Drive intersection in Merimbula can be seen in the image at the top of the page.

The key infrastructure project is based on historical crash data, vehicle movements and community reports, with improved safety and improved traffic flows the key goals.

With the major design components now settled in September 2021, the construction tender went to market in October last year. 

This project has been made possible through funding from the Australian Government Black Spot Program.
