Miling Bypass

Great Northern Highway is being upgraded from Lyons East Road to Miling North Road, including the construction of an eastern bypass of the Miling town site. Road safety will be significantly improved by directing road trains away from the town centre and local primary school. Watpac Civil and Mining Pty Ltd was awarded the contract to deliver these works and commenced construction in April 2018.

Latest news

Works are progressing well with pavement construction nearing 50 per cent completion. Sealing works will commence in early 2019.

Please take care when travelling through the project site and follow all traffic management directions and signage.
