North Wollongong interchange ramp to shut as upgrade continues

The northbound off-ramp from Memorial Drive to the Princes Highway at North Wollongong will be closed for three nights next week as work to widen and reconfigure the interchange continues.

Night work will see the off-ramp shut between 8pm and 5am, weather permitting, from Tuesday to Thursday.

Motorists will be detoured via the Princes Highway at Figtree or can use the Towradgi Road exit from Memorial Drive.

Drivers should allow up to five minutes of extra travel time. 

Traffic controllers and a reduced speed limit of 40km/h will be in place.

Motorists have been urged to check electronic message boards for the latest information and to follow the directions of signs and traffic control.

Roads and Maritime Services is adding a lane to the Memorial Drive off-ramp to the Princes Highway, to create two left and two right-hand turn lanes.

Elsewhere on the region’s roads, Bulli Pass will be closed on two days later this month for maintenance work.
