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.
Finalisation work on the bypass project is taking place from Monday 16 October to allow us to apply the final road surface. The Princes Highway on and off ramps will be closed to allow this work to be carried out.
- On Monday 16 October 2017 between 5am and 6pm, the northbound highway on-ramp at the Kangaroo Valley Road interchange will be closed to traffic. Motorists can access the highway via Queen Street at the Berry northern interchange on-ramp.
- From 5am on Tuesday 17 to 6pm Friday 20 October, the Berry northern interchange on-ramp and off-ramp will be closed. Motorists can use the Berry southern interchange southbound off-ramp and northbound on-ramp.
- On Friday 20 October from 5am to 6pm, the Austral Park Road interchange northbound highway off-ramp (access to Donovan Road and Foxground) will be closed. Motorists will be detoured via Belinda Street at Gerringong which may add an additional five to 10 minutes of travel time.
Access to Berry will continue to be maintained during this work.
Traffic control and a reduced speed limit will be in place for the safety of workers and motorists.
Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions, and follow the directions of signs and traffic control
