The New England Highway bypass of Singleton will reduce congestion for Singleton, as the New England Highway currently functions as the main road through the town centre.

The preferred route of the bypass was announced in December 2016. This includes building a new section of highway west of Singleton that will reconnect to the existing New England Highway past McDougalss Hill. Tenders to develop the concept design and undertake the environmental assessment are due on 23 February 2017.

The NSW Government has allocated $92 million towards the bypass under Rebuilding NSW, plus an additional $1.5 million for planning in the 2016/17 budget.

Roads and Maritime will carry out consultation with affected landowners and key stakeholders, including Singleton Council.

The preferred route corridor will be included in Singleton Council’s Local Environment Plan, reserving the land for future construction of the bypass.
