What's this about?
With around 26,000 vehicles – including more than 3700 trucks – passing through the Singleton CBD every day, the planned bypass will significantly improve the amenity of the Singleton town centre.
The bypass will also deliver greater freight efficiencies and productivity, as well as help build a safer road network for all users. Users will experience increased journey reliability and reduced travel time of up to six minutes compared to the existing route through town.
The New England Highway is part of the inland Sydney to Brisbane National Land Transport Network and the primary route connecting the Upper Hunter with Maitland and Newcastle.
The bypass involves building a new section of highway west of Singleton across the floodplain, starting near Newington Lane and rejoining the New England Highway north of McDougalls Hill.
