Route Numbering:

General Information:

State Route 89 is the former Hume Highway alignment between Prestons and Alpine near Mittagong. More of the former Hume Highway alignment continues from the northern terminus into the town of Liverpool. That section is defunct as far as numbering is concerned. This happened when the Roads and Traffic Authority decommisioned the Metroad 7 route between the M2 Hills Motorway at West Pennant Hills to the Metroad 5 Hume Highway at Prestons upon opening the Westlink M7 motorway in December 2005.

The route has a very big history, which goes back to the the first road south from Sydney, known as the Great South Road, which was formed in the 1800s. Some sections of the route still utilise the concrete pavement laid in the 1940s. The route is made up of mostly undivided road, however there's sections of 2 lane rural style road, 3 lane road and 4 lane roadway throughout the route, the Camden Bypass is freeway standard from Narellan and Elderslie.

Multiplexes along the route include:
