Foxground And Berry Bypass Officially Awarded To Fulton Hogan

Premier of NSW, Mike Baird, officially awarded the contract for the design and construction of the Foxground and Berry bypass, stage 2 of the Princes Highway upgrade located approximately 150 kilometres south of Sydney, to Fulton Hogan.

Fulton Hogan was announced as the preferred tenderer in March and will now complete this $580 project which will see 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 highway at Foxground and a bypass at Berry with access ramps at the north and south of the town.

Fulton Hogan is proud to be involved with this project which aims to provide significant road safety improvements for the community and passing motorists.

Initial works have commenced with major construction due to start in 2015 and the bypass is expected to be opened to traffic in mid-2018.

The Premier announced details of the contract award during a site visit to the Gerringong Upgrade, where Fulton Hogan is also carrying out works on this section of the Princes Highway.
