Traffic queues at the junction of Jervis Bay Road and the Princes Highway.
Planning for the upgrade of this T-section has been on record for about eight years. There has been considerable concern and anxiety expressed by residents regarding long queues and frustrations in order to access the Highway. The existing problem will only be exacerbated with the increase of tourists and holiday-makers visiting our area.
Vincentia Matters’ (the resident’s advocacy group in Vincentia) has initiated a Public Meeting to be held on Wednesday 7th November 2018 at 7pm at the St Georges Basin Country Club. “Representatives of the Federal and State Governments and Shoalhaven Council will attend, to hear our concerns and inform the community of their plans to address this issue. In the interests of all the villages of the Bay and Basin we strongly feel that now is the time to stand together and urge the three tiers of government to put the infrastructure in place, to resolve problems and better serve the community.”
