Construction of the Byron Bay Bypass started in July 2019 and finished in January 2021.
It is the largest single infrastructure project Byron Shire Council has delivered to date.
It was proudly funded by the NSW Government.
The Bypass has been built to:
The Bypass was approved following a rigorous environmental and planning process.
The preferred bypass route included a section of Mitchell's Rainforest Snail habitat.
A team of independent ecologists spent more than 600 hours surveying the area for Mitchell's Rainforest Snail.
The intensive effort of the onsite ecologists was hugely successful. They found and safely relocated Mitchell's Rainforest Snails.
As part of the construction of Stage 2, we built a fauna underpass to connect the wetland.
The underpass floor was lined with leaf litter, logs and naturally occurring soil, to provide a suitable path for the Mitchell's Rainforest Snails.
