Initial works have begun on the $2.74 million upgrade to the Cameron Corner Road, which is set to improve road safety and access for residents, freight operators, tourists and emergency services in the remote area. 

Cameron Corner straddles the border in three states, New South Wales, Queensland, and South Australia, and often becomes impassable during and after storm events.

Under the $691 million Fixing Local Roads Program, Transport for NSW has started work to fix a 3km section of the Cameron Corner Road, located in the far north-west of the state.

When the project is completed in late 2024, motorists will experience better road surface, enhanced safety, and improved access in the area.

Transport for NSW Regional Director West, Alistair Lunn, said that work will include the realignment of two curves, rehabilitation of the road, drainage improvements, gravel overlay and sealing to improve safety, lessen flood impacts and improve access during wet weather.

“This project will provide a safer and more reliable connection for the local community in this corner of far west New South Wales,” Mr Lunn said.

“This will have positive impacts for residents, freight and livestock industry, local businesses and emergency services as well as a boost for tourism.”

Transport crews are carrying out the work, as the area falls under the Unincorporated Far West Region. 

Construction is expected to take up to 12 months to complete, weather permitting.
