Project Information

Daracon is working in conjunction with the NSW Roads & Maritime Services to deliver The New England Highway Bypass of Scone project. Construction commenced in 2018 and is likely to be completed in late 2020.

Roads & Maritime Services have identified The New England Highway bypass of Scone will remove a large number of heavy vehicles from the town centre, it will also provide an alternative route for road users wanting to travel across town unimpeded by rail operations which overall will result in improved:

·         Traffic flow and amenity for local traffic

·         Travel times for freight and long-distance traffic and

·         Safety for all road users.

Key features of the Scone Bypass include:

·         A two-lane highway bypass to the west of Scone

·         Three bridges - providing a grade-separated intersection at the southern end, crossing over the rail line south of Scone, and crossing over Kingdon and Liverpool streets

·         Access to and from the bypass to the north and south of town and midway at St Aubins Street providing for all turning movements.
