The Muswellbrook Bypass will see the New England Highway pass to the north east of Muswellbrook.
Transport for NSW's preferred option for the bypass is a 9.1-kilometre bypass between the New England Highway near Milpera Drive and north of Sandy Creek Road.
The NSW Government is undertaking the progressive upgrade of the New England Highway, part of National Land Transport Network, which runs from the Hunter region to the Queensland border.
