Regional areas to open up, Vic

By webmaster

Regional Victoria is being opened up with significant new infrastructure works, according to the Department of Infrastructure and Transport.

A $152 million contract was awarded for works on a 23km section of highway in Victoria yesterday as part of a plan to upgrade the Western Highway duplication.

Federal Parliamentary secretary for Infrastructure and Transport and member for Ballarat Catherine King and Victorian minister for Roads Terry Mulder said that it would be a four-lane divided highway and is a milestone for the overall duplication.

“We are working in partnership with the Victorian Government to renew and expand our transport infrastructure to support the national economy, and to better connect people living and working in regional Victoria,” Ms King said.

This duplication will link Ballarat and Stawell overall, while this latest development is focused on a divided highway section from Burrumbeet to Trawalla.

There will also be a bypass to the south of the Trawalla township, said Mr Mulder.

“The new works will improve the efficiency of freight movement to make the Western Highway much safer for the local communities and for through traffic,” he said.

“It's pleasing to see this important project for regional Victoria moving ahead, and we look forward to the opening of the first additional lanes in coming months.”
