Closure of Macquarie Pass


Kiama Council has warned motorists using Jamberoo Mountain Road to expect heavier traffic conditions during the closure of Macquarie Pass.

Roads and Maritime Services will close Macquarie Pass on the following dates:

  • 6am Monday 24 July to 3pm Friday 28 July
  • 6am Monday 31 July to 3pm Friday 4 August
  • 6am Monday 7 August to 3pm Friday 11 August

Drivers should expect increased traffic on Jamberoo Mountain Road as a result of the closures.

While Macquarie Pass will have one lane open on the weekends, motorists should still expect more traffic than normal on Jamberoo Mountain Road.

Council has also reminded drivers that, due to a recent landslip, a section of Jamberoo Mountain Road is one lane only.

Drivers are asked to show caution and patience during this time.
