Singleton Bypass

Transport for NSW is planning for a future New England Highway bypass of Singleton to improve traffic flow, travel times and safety through Singleton town centre by reduced traffic including heavy  freight.

In response to the NSW Government’s Environmental Impact Statement in 2020, Council’s submission called for a number of changes to the proposed design, including dual carriageway and a full interchange at Putty Road.

On 16 April 2021, the NSW government announced it will build a full interchange for the bypass with Putty Road. In that media release, the government committed that both the Muswellbrook and Singleton bypasses will begin next year.
