Overview

Echuca in Victoria and Moama in New South Wales are connected by a single Murray River Bridge, which was opened in 1878.

The project will build a second Murray River crossing, connecting the Murray Valley Highway and Warren Street at Echuca, with the Cobb Highway at Perricoota Road in Moama.

  • Stage 1: Upgrade of the Murray Valley Highway and Warren Street intersection was completed in mid 2018.
  • Stage 2: Warren Street upgrade was completed in November 2019.
  • Stage 3: Construction of new bridges over the Campaspe and Murray rivers is scheduled to commence in early 2020.
  • Stage 4: Intersection upgrades to the Cobb Highway, Meninya Street and Perricoota Road intersection. This stage is being delivered by Transport for NSW, with construction scheduled to commence in early 2020 and take up to 18 months to complete.

This second crossing, which will strengthen the link between Echuca, Moama and the surrounding regions, is planned to be completed in late 2022.

The Echuca-Moama Bridge Project is jointly funded by the Australian, Victorian and New South Wales governments.
