The final two sections of the Princes Highway East duplication at Flynn and Kilmany have been given the green light.
The project is the third stage of the Princes Highway East duplication project between Traralgon and Sale.
The remaining two sections at Flynn and Kilmany will add an extra 12km of lanes in each direction, delivering a total of 43km of duplicated highway across the entire project.
The new lanes will bring immediate safety improvements to around 15,000 motorists who use this stretch of road every day and improve journey times between Traralgon and Sale.
A range of safety improvements will be delivered including, wider shoulders and centre median with flexible safety barriers to improve safety and reduce the risk of and severity of run-off road and head-on crashes.
With pre-construction activities already complete, procurement for the joint Victorian and Australian $253 million road project will be underway by the end of the year, improving freight efficiency in the region and supporting economic recovery efforts now and into the future.
