Drivers travelling on the Swan Hill-Sea Lake Road, west of Swan Hill, and on the Murray Valley Highway, south of Swan Hill, can look forward to a smoother and more reliable journey.

Crews will rebuild a 1.06-kilometre section of the Swan Hill-Sea Lake Road between Ainsburry Road and Mason Road, and a 1.45-kilometre section of the Murray Valley Highway between Maher Road and Palframan Lane. 

Crews will complete works on the Swan Hill-Sea Lake Road for approximately four weeks before moving to the Murray Valley Highway for an additional seven weeks, weather permitting.  

The road foundations will be rebuilt and then resealed to create a better journey for the thousands of vehicles who travel the two roads each day, including around 1,000 heavy vehicles.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane at times during works with speed reductions in place. Drivers should allow an extra three to five minutes for their journey while works are in progress.

The works are expected to be finished by mid-April, weather permitting.

The Victorian Government will rebuild, repair and resurface hundreds of Victorian roads thanks to an investment of more than $770 million in maintaining Victoria’s road assets over the next 12 months.
