The company that built the Berry bypass has been chosen to build another one around Albion Park Rail.
Fulton Hogan was responsible for the first two stages of the Princes Highway upgrade – at Gerringong and at Berry.
The construction company has been picked from a shortlist of three to build the long-awaited Albion Park Rail Bypass.
“The award of this contract to Fulton Hogan to design and deliver the bypass is a significant milestone, as it means the project is on track with the timeline I announced at the last state election,” Parliamentary Secretary for the Illawarra Gareth Ward said.

“Fulton Hogan will now work on the detailed design and I look forward to working with them – as I have on previous projects in our region.”
Mr Ward said Fulton Hogan would be required to engage apprentices and trainees as part of the project.
The $630 million project will create a four-lane highway that will stretch 9.8 kilometres around Albion Park Rail with works to start in the 2018-19 financial year.
