Major works complete
The largest transport infrastructure project in northern Victoria is now complete and open to traffic, months ahead of schedule.
After more than 140 years with a single Murray River crossing, locals and visitors to the region can now enjoy safer and easier travel between Echuca and Moama.
Cyclists and pedestrians are also benefitting from the project, with nearly 5 kilometres of new safe and scenic walking and cycling paths now open between the Murray Valley Highway in Echuca and the Cobb Highway in Moama.
The $323.7 million Echuca-Moama Bridge Project is jointly funded by the Australian, Victorian and NSW governments.

- Stage 3: Construction of new bridges over the Campaspe and Murray rivers - completed in April 2022
- Stage 4: Intersection upgrades to the Cobb Highway, Meninya Street and Perricoota Road intersection - completed in April 2022.
