Another milestone reached for Berry bypass as traffic diverted onto new highway
8 December 2016
Member for Kiama Gareth Ward has today announced another milestone will be reached as part of the $580 million Foxground and Berry bypass project with traffic to be diverted onto a further two kilometres of new highway tomorrow night.
Mr Ward said that final preparation work is being carried out to allow motorists to move onto the new highway tomorrow night, weather permitting.
“We have already seen traffic diverted north and south of Berry and now we have a significant switch taking place tomorrow night,” he said.
“Motorists will be diverted onto almost two kilometres of new highway between Austral Park Road and Tindalls Lane.
“Road users will travel on the future northbound lanes with one lane in each direction to allow the southbound lanes and the Austral Park Road and Tindalls Lane interchanges to be built.
“This is a great boost to safety and travel times and a credit to the way this project is being managed as it’s progressing at a terrific pace.
“As part of the diversion temporary junctions will be provided for motorists at Austral Park Road, Gembrook Lane and Tindalls Lane.
“To prepare for the diversion, night work will be carried out on Wednesday 7 December and Thursday 8 December between 6pm and 7am.
“Work involves removing existing lines and marking new lines to guide road users.
“For safety, traffic control and a reduced 40 km/h speed limit will be in place during work hours.
“I would like to thank motorists for their patience whilst this important work is being carried out,” Mr Ward concluded.
