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.
Moyne Shire Council has secured a portion of the $70 million in second round funding for additional road upgrades.
This funding will support council to rebuild and widen nearly six kilometres of Portland Road to improve the strength and safety of this key agricultural route.
Nearly 2.5 kilometres of Wiggs Lane will also be widened and sealed to ensure this rural-access road can continue to support local communities and industries.
Round one projects are on track for completion by mid-2019, while round two projects must be delivered by June 2020.
