CM+ are providing independent, expert Urban Design advice to Roads and Maritime Services for the Foxground and Berry Bypass. Working collaboratively and in an iterative process with the RMS project team, CM+ have workshopped the developing design with the local community. The Urban Design Strategy provides an integrated design solution that considers the broader Berry township context, heritage, the quality of life and the valued picturesque rural setting. Important escarpment views from the township have been maintained through refinement of the bypass alignment and the innovative use of landform to screen the new highway. Urban Design concepts for the 800 metre long Berry Bridge, Kangaroo Valley Road Interchange and Northern Interchange have been developed and documented to form a detailed Reference Design – to capture the outcomes of the consultation process and to inform the subsequent tender stage. Innovative, and sustainable, ‘green wall’ noise mitigation barriers have been developed, integrated within their pastoral setting.
