TO tackle mounting traffic congestion through Bulli and Thirroul, Transport for NSW have announced it will investigate measures to improve the transport network along the existing road corridors.

The study area includes the Princes Highway and Lawrence Hargrave Drive from Hospital Road at Bulli in the south, to Mary Street at Thirroul in the north. The study will exclude Bulli Pass.

The community and road users are invited to have their say about living and travelling in and around Bulli and Thirroul as part of planning future improvements.

Transport for NSW says it is committed to providing safe, efficient and reliable journeys through Bulli and Thirroul while identifying ways to help to maintain the amenity in the town centres.

“We are currently investigating improvements to the Princes Highway at Bulli and Lawrence Hargrave Drive at Thirroul,” a Transport for NSW spokesperson said.

“We are seeking feedback from road users and the community on their experience of these two locations to help us understand issues and opportunities in the area and to inform future improvements.

“Comments about living in these town centres and driving through them, the road network and ideas about future transport needs and opportunities are all welcome.

“Participating is easy – all you have to do is go online to access an interactive map then add comments at specific locations.

“The online map allows us to better understand community feedback by pinpointing the exact location a comment is referring to. Your feedback will help us understand the local community’s experiences and guide us with our planning.”

The community has the opportunity to provide feedback until Friday November 8.

To submit your comments on the online tool, visit and follow the instructions. The spokesperson said the community will be kept informed as the project progresses.
