Project Description

The project involved construction of a new 3.5 kilometre two-lane highway west of Bega, which bypasses the Bega town centre and connects to the Princes Highway.


The bypass now enables the Princes Highway, between the Snowy Mountains Highway and the Victorian border, to be used by B-double vehicles. The bypass also removes through vehicles from the town centre, improving safety and amenity for residents.


The Australian Government has fully funded the $49.585 million project.


Construction commenced on 12 June 2012 and all major works were completed on 19 December 2013.
