The Foxground and Berry bypass has opened to traffic. It provides 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 included 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.
DEC 2018Noise assessment report now available
A post construction noise assessment has been completed and the report is now available following the opening of the Foxground and Berry bypass.
The report has concluded that the operational noise mitigation measures implemented as part of the project are performing as intended and road traffic noise is consistent with predictions.
View or download the report and its appendices:
- Post-construction operational road traffic noise assessment report (PDF, 960Kb)
