The opening date of the Holbrook bypass in New South Wales has again been pushed back due to wet weather.

The new bypass on the Hume Highway was scheduled to open on July 31 but is now expected to be open on August 7.

The project is 4km long and is part of the 807km duplication of the Hume Highway.

It is expected to provide a faster, safer trip between Sydney and Melbourne.

The speed limit on the bypass will be limited to 80km/h for one week after the route opens while final work is completed. The speed limit will then increase to 110km/h.

Federal Infrastructure and Transport Minister Anthony Albanese says the route will remove up to 2,700 trucks a day from the local streets of Holbrook.

The bypass starts 4km north of Holbrook and crosses Culcairn Road. From there it crosses Ten Mile Creek and re-joins the Hume Highway 2km south of Holbrook.
