Wimmera Highway improvements set to continue this month

Two more sections of the Wimmera highway, at Dooen and St Arnaud East, can expect repairs and upgrades to begin in the next few weeks.

Work on the highway, between Molyneaux Road and Max Johns Road and Forster Road and Kooreh Road, is expected to be complete by the end of May. Additional work will begin next month at Murtoa township.

These latest projects are all part of the Victorian Government’s $780 million investment in maintaining the state’s road assets and build on road rehabilitation works undertaken last year on the same highway.

“Our regional highways across the state provide important connections for freight, agriculture and the community,” said Minister for Roads and Road Safety, Melissa Horne.

Since the start of the year, crews have been on-site repairing sections of the highway at Bates Lake near Hauslers-Dundons Road, and between Quantong Cemetery Road and Vectis Station Road in Vectis.

In total, more than 3.9 km of the Wimmera Highway will be repaired across five sections, benefitting the approximately 2,000 drivers who use it every day, including more than 200 trucks and heavy vehicles.

Lane closures and a reduced speed limit will be in place during the project, with traffic management on site.
