Another 500 metres of the Foxground and Berry bypass opens to traffic
5 May 2016
Member for Kiama Gareth Ward today announced that local motorists will be able to travel on a further 500 metres of new highway as part of the $580 million Foxground and Berry bypass Princes Highway upgrade from later tonight.
Mr Ward said that the opening of this latest section of highway comes after motorists were successfully moved onto a 1.5 kilometre section of the new highway in late April.
“The traffic diversion in April was well received by the local community and by motorists,” he said.
“From later this evening, motorists can travel on a further 500 metres of new road, passing under the bridge at Berry.
“It’s a great achievement to have motorists travelling more safely for two kilometres between Gembrook Lane and Berry as part of the new 12.5 kilometre Princes Highway upgrade between Toolijooa Road and Andersons Lane,” Mr Ward said.
“This is a temporary traffic change. Traffic will be operating one lane in each direction on this 500 metre section of road which ultimately forms the new northbound on ramp from Berry.
“Work will continue on building four new lanes which will allow motorists to travel on two dedicated lanes in each direction with median separation when the project is completed,” Mr Ward concluded.
