General Information:

State Route 69 is one of the more unusual routes in the NSW state route system. It's split into 2 sections. The northern section consists mainly of undivided single carriageway road. The southern section is mostly the same except around the Campbelltown area where it's generally 4-lane and 6-lane divided arterial road.

Both sections service residential, commercial and agricultural areas, but also pass through national park and state forests.

The northern section is quite windy in parts and is an alternate route from Sydney to the Hunter Valley but generally sees a lower volume of traffic than the southern section which connects the southwestern outskirts of Sydney with the city of Wollongong.

Multiplexes along the route include:
