Project details

The Kempsey Bypass Alliance was awarded a contract to design and construct 14.5km of four-lane divided highway from Kempsey to Frederickton, excluding 2.2km of major bridge crossings of the Macleay River and floodplain. The alliance agreement included the main road works and all other remaining activities, including preparation of the site for the bridge contractor. The Kempsey Bypass opened to traffic in March 2013.

The Kempsey bypass project involved building a 14.5 kilometre four-lane divided highway with bypasses of Kempsey and Frederickton. The bypass was the first stage of the approved 40 kilometre Kempsey to Eungai upgrade. 

The Roads and Maritime Services (formerly Roads and Traffic Authority) formed an alliance with CPB Contractors, AECOM and Coffey Geotechnics to design and build the Kempsey Bypass.
