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.

Temporary traffic changes to build the new roundabout at Woodhill Mountain Road intersection, Berry.

Work is progressing on the new roundabout at the Woodhill Mountain Road intersection with Queen and North streets, Berry.

We have temporarily closed North Street between Woodhill Mountain Road and Berry Sporting Complex, to allow us to safely build the new roundabout.

A local road detour and traffic control is in place with minimal impacts to your travel time. Road signs are in place to guide motorists.

For more information showing the temporary closure and detour please view or download the map.

We appreciate your patience while we carry out this work.

Berry bypass is open to traffic

Temporary traffic conditions are in place at the Berry southern interchange including a detour for motorists via George and Victoria streets, to access the southbound highway on-load ramp. Please view or download the June 2017 project update.
