Removing 50 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne
Echuca in Victoria and Moama in New South Wales are connected by a single Murray River Bridge, which was built in 1878.
A new bridge will connect the Murray Valley Highway and Warren Street at Echuca with the Cobb Highway at Perricoota Road in Moama.
The project will be constructed in four stages:
- Murray Valley Highway/ Warren Street roundabout
- Warren Street upgrades
- New bridge road (over the Campaspe and Murray River)
- Upgrades to the Cobb Highway/Meninya Street/Perricoota Road intersections.
Stage 1 works are set to be complete by mid-2018.
The Echuca-Moama Bridge is jointly funded by the Australian, Victorian and New South Wales governments.
A second crossing will strengthen the link between Echuca, Moama and the surrounding regions
The Echuca-Moama bridge project is being delivered by the Major Road Projects Authority. Visit the project website for more information.
