Foxground and Berry bypass
The Foxground and Berry bypass project 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 and 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 Foxground and Berry bypasses are open to traffic with the new highway lanes south of Berry being built. Overall project completion is expected at the end of 2017, weather permitting.
