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 bypass is open to traffic and the Berry bypass is expected to be open to traffic in mid 2017, weather permitting.

Community celebration walk and early completion of the Berry bypass
On Sunday 18 June 2017, the community was given the opportunity to walk on the Berry bypass before it opens to traffic later in July. The event was well attended by local residents and we would like to thank everyone who came down and celebrated with us on the day.
Out of hours work
During June and July 2017, we would like to extend our working hours in areas located between the Berry northern and southern interchanges. We would like to start work at 7am and finish at 7pm Monday to Friday and start at 7am and finish at 5pm Saturdays.
Night work will also be required for up to three nights at each of the following locations:
- Donovan Road (the old Princes Highway) and the Austral Park Road interchange

Pavement work at the Berry northern interchange is planned to occur on Sunday 25 June between 6pm and 7am, weather permitting. Traffic control on the Princes Highway north of Berry will be in place during this work including stop / slow.
