Foxground & Berry Bypass

This project on the south coast of New South Wales was a significant transport infrastructure investment for the region. It set a benchmark for the collaborative delivery of design and construct road projects in NSW and has attracted high praise from our client.

It provides a four-lane highway with median separation for 12.5 kilometres of the Princes Highway between Toolijooa Road and just south of Andersons Lane.

Key features included:

  • 6.6 kilometres of new highway, including bypasses of the Foxground bends and the Berry township
  • A cutting about 25 metres deep at Toolijooa Ridge, bypassing the Foxground bends
  • Six lanes through the cutting at Toolijooa Ridge for a distance of 1.5 kilometres, providing two lanes and a climbing lane in each direction
  • Three bridge crossings and a new roundabout.

In late 2016 the project won the IECA (International Erosion Control Association) award for Category 1 – Excellence in Erosion and Sediment Control. The judges praised the `beyond compliance’ culture that had been established among the team.

Community consultation remained a priority for the project’s duration. The team also maintained an exceptional safety record, working over 19 million

man hours to deliver the project in August 2017 well ahead of schedule.
