Another two roads connecting Canberra to the coast have reopened, after being closed for almost a month by the fires.
On Tuesday afternoon, the Kings Highway finally reopened after being closed for weeks as the Currowan and Clyde Mountain fires devastated the area.
Shoalhaven City Council said Nerriga Road and Turpentine Road would reopen at 10am on Wednesday after almost a month of closure.
Nerriga Road runs from Braidwood to Nowra and has been closed recently because of fires around Nerriga, Tianjara and beyond. Turpentine Road connects Nerriga Road to the Jervis Bay area.
"Crews have been working tirelessly to make the road safe following the fires. They've felled and removed a large number of dangerous trees and conducted inspections of the road, ready for it to reopen," the council said in a statement.
Parts of the Nerriga Road would remain under traffic control while crews continued the clean-up, repaired guardrails and replaced guide posts.
Several roads that connect to Nerriga Road, including Charleys Forrest Road, Tomboye Road, remain accessible to local traffic only. Inspections and clean-up on those roads continues.
Turpentine Road will have 60kmh speed limit. Council staff will still be along the road verge clearing trees.
The Kings Highway was opened about 2pm Tuesday. About 1200 hazardous trees have been removed on the 43-kilometre section of the highway. Also, 43 damaged guardrails and 500 cats eye reflector lights have been repaired.
Member for Bega Andrew Constance announced the re-opening on Tuesday morning. He said it was welcome news to locals.
"The Kings Highway is an essential route in and out of the South Coast and our number one priority remains ensuring the safety of the community and all involved in the recovery efforts," Mr Constance said.
Eurobodalla mayor Liz Innes said the highway re-opening would be a major boost for the area.
"Bushfires have devastated our community and our landscape, and we're hurting," Ms Innes said.
"Part of our recovery is the return of visitors and particularly our Canberra friends to help local businesses get back on their feet."
Driving between Braidwood and Batemans Bay, the damage was plain to see. Black trunks were all that was left of many trees, and the beautiful ferns that once lined the way were just black stumps.
Significant work has been done to ensure the road is safe, including replacing burnt infrastructure. Some burnt signs and melted reflective plastic rails were still there as a sign of just how hot the fires were.
It was previously expected the highway could be closed until late-January or early February. NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro indicated in late-December the highway could have been closed for at least a month.
Up to 70 transport workers a day have been working on reopening the stretch of road since Monday, January 6.
