More local roads, bridges and intersections will be upgraded across regional and rural Victoria as part of the Andrews Labor Government’s Fixing Country Roads Program, meaning safer and more reliable journeys for drivers.
Corangamite Shire Council has secured a portion of the $70 million in second round funding for additional road improvement projects.
This funding will support council to rebuild and widen about 6 kilometres of Foxhow-Berrybank Road at Berrybank and upgrade the intersection of Depot Road and Old Geelong Road at Camperdown to provide a safer and more reliable journey for local communities and industries.
About 1.9 kilometres of Lismore-Pittong Road at Bradvale will also be rebuilt to improve the strength, safety and longevity of the road, particularly for heavy vehicles.
Round one projects are on track for completion by mid-2019, while round two projects must be delivered by June 30, 2020.
