Traffic diverted on to another two kilometres of Foxground and Berry Bypass
2 August 2016
Parliamentary Secretary for the Illawarra and South Coast Gareth Ward has today announced that motorists will be travelling on a further two kilometres of new highway later this week as part of the $580 million Foxground and Berry bypass project.
“Early on Thursday morning motorists are expected to be diverted onto a new two kilometre section of highway between Queen Street and Mullers Lane just south of Berry, weather permitting,” Mr Ward said.
“Motorists will be able to travel on the new highway which will be one lane in each direction on the new northbound lanes, to allow work to progress on the 12.5 kilometre Princes Highway upgrade between Toolijooa Road and Andersons Lane.
“This is another example of the progress being made on this highway upgrade which will improve safety and travel times for motorists.
“Motorists are also now travelling across the new bridge at Schofields Lane,” he said.
Mr Ward said that motorists wishing to visit Mark Radium Park will now be detoured via George Street.
“The Victoria Street intersection with the Princes Highway will be closed for up to 12 months to allow work on the southbound on ramp and local access road,” he said.
“Also, the Huntingdale Park Road intersection with Kangaroo Valley Road is now closed for up to six months to allow work on the new roundabout at this intersection.
“Huntingdale Park traffic will access the highway and Berry township via the Hitchcocks Lane extension.
“I would like to thank our local community for its patience as this project progresses,” Mr Ward concluded.
