Drivers are one step closer to better roads and improved cross-border connections with major works on Stage 2 of the Echuca-Moama Bridge Project completed in November 2019 and preparations underway for major works on Stages 3 and 4.
Stage 2 involved the complete upgrade of Warren Street in Echuca, including:
- four new flood relief bridges
- a brand new 1.93km shared walking and cycling path
- a new roundabout
- an extended right-hand turning lane into Homan Street and the Echuca Cemetery
- a dedicated residential service road, providing safer access for local residents.
Major works on Stage 3 will soon be underway, which includes construction of new bridges over the Campaspe and Murray rivers. Stage 3 is scheduled to commence in early 2020.
Stage 4, which is being delivered by Transport for NSW, involves upgrading the Moama intersections to connect the Cobb Highway to the new Murray River bridge.
The $323.7 million Echuca-Moama Bridge Project is jointly funded by the Australian, Victorian and NSW governments. It involves the construction of a second Murray River crossing to connect Echuca and Moama to make it quicker and easier to travel across the Campaspe and Murray rivers.
The project is due for completion in 2022.
