The Queanbeyan Bypass project was for the construction of 4.6km of two-lane single carriageway, with climbing lanes and earthworks, linking Ellerton Drive to the Edwin Land Parkway at the intersection at Old Cooma Road. The project also included a new bridge crossing the Queanbeyan River.
The project has:
- Provided an alternative route for through traffic, alleviating congestion in the Queanbeyan CBD;
- Supported the future traffic growth associated with new housing developments in Googong and Tralee;
- Provided a flood-free access through the CBD for 1:100 year flood events;
- Provided alternative access for heavy vehicles; and
- Reduced road safety risk and improved amenity within the CBD.
Australian Government contribution was capped at $25 million and was provided on the basis of a NSW Government contribution of $25 million. The remaining funding was met by the Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council.
Construction on the project commenced late 2017 and was completed and open to traffic in July 2020.
