The Kingston Bypass was jointly funded by the state and federal governments to relieve congestion in Kingston and provide a safer, more efficient journey for the 18 000 commuters that pass through the Channel Highway on a daily basis.
VEC’s Structures and Civil teams worked seamlessly to deliver Spring Farm Overpass, Summerleas Bridge, interchange ramps, a large roundabout, and a two-lane carriageway with provision for a future dual carriageway. Alongside the traffic benefits of the project are the social improvements such as White Water Trail - a cycling and walking path, and the facilitation of further development in the region.
