Drivers will now enjoy a smoother and safer journey when travelling between Lavers Hill and Cobden with the completion of a massive road rebuilding project thanks to the Andrews Labor Government.
Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney said about 10 kilometres of Lavers Hill-Cobden Road had been completely rebuilt between Chapple Vale and Jancourt East to provide a stronger, safer and longer lasting road for the community.
Works on the first two sections between Gellibrand River Road and Blackwood Park Road began last October, while works on the remaining three sections at Simpson, and north and south of the Timboon-Colac Road intersection started early this year.
These key sections of the road have been completely rebuilt, new and improved drainage has been installed, and road shoulder and line marking works have been completed.
This $6.4 million project is part of a Victorian Government’s record $333 million maintenance blitz in regional Victoria, and is the most significant upgrade to occur on this road in the past decade.
