The Andrews Labor Government is making Casterton-Apsley Road smoother and safer for drivers with the completion of recent road upgrades.
Just under a kilometre of road at Nangeela was reconstructed, resurfaced and widened as part of the Labor Government’s $40 million Narrow Roads program.
Previously this section of road was too narrow for two vehicles to pass each other – but now there is a full lane in each direction and sealed shoulders.
It is one of ten narrow roads across south west Victoria to be upgraded under the Narrow Roads program with works already complete on Ayresford Road, Myamyn-Macarthur Road, Timboon-Nullawarre Road, Skipton Road, Foxhow Road, Inverleigh-Winchelsea Road and Inverleigh-Shelford Road.
Works on two more narrow roads – Coleraine-Edenhope Road and Warrnambool-Caramut Road – are continuing this summer, with both due for completion early this year.
These works include rebuilding and widening about five kilometres of Coleraine-Edenhope Road (between Harrow-Balmoral Road and Harrow) and about 10 kilometres of Warrnambool-Caramut Road (between Bromfield Road and the Hamilton Highway).

“These roads were built generations ago – we’re making sure key sections are stronger, safer and wider so they can best serve local communities and industries.”
