Singleton Bypass

The New England Highway is part of the inland Sydney to Brisbane National Land Transport Network and currently carries 26,000 vehicles, including more than 3,700 heavy vehicles, each day.

The project involves building a new section of highway west of Singleton across the floodplain, starting near Newington Lane and re-joining the New England Highway north of McDougalls Hill

The proposal seeks to address existing congestion and concerns over network capacity, efficiency and safety of the road users along the New England Highway and in Singleton.

The Australian Government has committed $560 million and the NSW Government $140 million to build the Singleton Bypass.
