Regional Roads Victoria North Eastern Regional Director Nicki Kyriakou said upgrades on the Goulburn Valley Highway, Murray Valley Highway and Glenrowan-Myrtleford Road (also known as Snow Road) would provide smoother, safer journeys for all road users.
“We know how important safety is to road users travelling throughout north east Victorian roads each day, which is why we’ve committed to delivering these essential upgrades,” Ms Kyriakou said.
“You’ll see our crews out this maintenance season, ensuring we provide a reliable road network for all Victorians.”
Just under one kilometre of the Glenrowan-Myrtleford Road, Whorouly, has been upgraded between Trakton Road and Barney’s Lane, with a further kilometre of road improved on the Murray Valley Highway near Ludlow’s Reserve, Ebden.
An overtaking lane will be rebuilt by the end of the year on the Goulburn Valley Highway west of Strathmerton, where thousands of vehicles travel each day on one of the region’s key freight routes.
Ms Kyriakou said nearly 210 kilometres of roads will be either resurfaced or rebuilt across north east Victoria this financial year, as part of the Victorian Government’s record $333 million maintenance package.
Further rehabilitation works set to roll out across the region this maintenance season include significant pavement repairs on the Hume Freeway at Winton and the Great Alpine Road, Mount Hotham.
