Foxground and Berry bypass

The Foxground and Berry bypass is under construction. It will provide a four-lane highway (two lanes in each direction) with median separation for 12.5 kilometres of the Princes Highway between Toolijooa Road to just south of Andersons Lane.

The upgrade includes a bypass of the existing winding highway at Foxground and a bypass of Berry with access ramps at the north and south of the town.

The bypass is expected to be open to traffic in mid 2018, weather permitting.

News

The Foxground bypass section of the project between Toolijooa Road and Austral Park Road will open to highway traffic before Easter this year.

The Berry bypass section is expected to open ahead of schedule, before Christmas this year. The Berry bypass will be completed six months early and will include the completion of the 610 metre bridge at Berry, allowing highway motorists to bypass the Berry township completely.
