Foxground and Berry bypass
The Foxground and Berry bypass will provide a four-lane divided highway (two lanes in each direction) with median separation for 11.6 kilometres of the Princes Highway between Toolijooa Road and Schofields Lane. The upgrade will include 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.
