Overview

We’re investigating this key section of the McIvor Highway from Reservoir Road, Strathdale to Longlea Lane, Longlea to plan for future growth, ensuring that all road users experience a safe and efficient drive, ride or walk

Details

McIvor Highway is a key route connecting Junortoun to Bendigo and Heathcote and is currently used by approximately 14,000 vehicles per day as well as active transport users (walkers and cyclists). The Victorian Government has provided $3.5 million to investigate options to increase capacity and safety for all road users. 

Benefits

Improvements to this road would:

  • increase capacity 
  • increase safety particularly for overtaking and intersections 
  • provide active transport options for walking and cycling
  • improve freight efficiency
  • cater for future population growth
