Kings Highway and Clyde Mountain closure

Written by on July 31, 2021

UPDATE 16/8/2021

I’m pleased to confirm that Transport for NSW has revised plans for the full closure of the Kings Highway at Clyde Mountain.
The updated program will see see the road closed Tuesday-Thursday each week, starting Tuesday, 31 August. The Kings Highway will remain open on Monday, Friday and weekends, as well as during the September school holidays and October long weekend.
Like many in the community I was concerned about the potential impact the original schedule would have on our local businesses, who have been dealt a tough hand over the past 24 months.
It’s so important to keep communities connected, and I’m relieved that we’ve been able to deliver an outcome that ensures this critical safety work can be carried out with as little disruption to motorists, local communities and local businesses as possible.
Clyde Mountain closure schedule

Since 2019 there have been multiple Natural Disaster declarations in Eurobodalla Shire for storm, flood and bushfire events. These disasters have highlighted the need for the state road network to be safe and reliable and to ensure that roadside maintenance is adequate.

In early 2021 an arborist report identified approximately 400 high risk trees on the Clyde Mountain Pass section of the Kings Highway. These trees were badly burnt in the 2019/20 bushfires and have become significantly less stable due to the effects of storms and flooding. The identified trees must be removed as they pose a safety risk to road users and workers.

Transport for NSW will remove these trees under full road closure of the Kings Highway at Clyde Mountain. The closures will be in place from late August to mid November 2021, weather permitting.
