We're delivering major upgrades in the Barwon South West region, including vital safety and maintenance improvements.
Our region spans over Victoria's south western reaches and encompasses communities from the cities of Greater Geelong and Warrnambool; the shires of Colac Otway, Corangamite, Glenelg, Moyne, Southern Grampians and the Surf Coast; and the borough of Queenscliffe.
What we're doing
We’re working to deliver stronger, safer and more reliable roads for locals, tourists and the freight industry. Your feedback helps shape our plans for the regional road network.
The 2020/21 Budget will support the delivery of important road works across the region, while also supporting jobs on the ground and throughout the supply chain such as:
- Hamilton Highway
- Penhurst-Warrnambool Road
- Warrnambool-Caramut Road
- Geelong Ring Road
- Ryrie Street in Geelong
These works are being delivered under the Victorian Government’s two-year $425 million investment into rebuilding and resurfacing regional roads, with a further $124 million injected into improving roads across the state this year through the Building Works economic stimulus package.
The Victorian Government has also invested $272.4 million to safeguard the Great Ocean Road and its inland routes, as well as key roads that support the local dairy industry.
