Miling Bypass

We have finalised designs for an upgrade of the highway from Lyons East Road to Miling North Road, including a new eastern bypass of the Miling townsite, and will soon call for tenders from construction contractors.

Subject to environmental approvals being secured, construction is expected to start in early 2018. The work will take approximately 14 months to complete.


Project scope and benefits

The Miling bypass will separate local and heavy traffic and minimise noise and vibration in the small farming town. It will also improve freight efficiency by providing a continuous 110 km/h environment for heavy vehicles on the outskirts of the town.

The proposed design for this project includes:

  • Re-alignment of Miling West Road to provide a direct access road to the CBH facility from the north of the town;
  • A southern realignment of Miling Moora Road to avoid floodplains; and
  • A realignment of Miling East Road to provide a staggered T-intersection for safe crossing of the bypass.
