General Information:

The Barton Highway (A25) is a short highway connecting Canberra to the Hume Motorway (M31) at Yass, and it is part of the route from Melbourne to Canberra

Most roads connecting to the Barton Highway are at-grade intersections (using standard junctions, signals or roundabouts), with the exception of Gunghalin Drive, which features a full grade separated interchange.

The Barton Highway is named after Australia's first Prime Minister, Sir Edmund Barton, who served between 1901 and 1903. He was also a barrister and Member of the New South Wales Parliament and one of the leading workers for Federation, serving on the Committee which prepared the draft for the Constitution. He resigned from Parliament in 1903 to become the Senior Puisne Judge of the newly constituted High Court of Australia. 1
