The project duplicated 25 kilometres of the Princes Highway West from Draytons Road, Waurn Ponds to Deans Marsh Road, Winchelsea. The project constructed two additional lanes to provide a four lane, dual carriageway with a central median. The project also upgraded and signalised intersections, improved access to local roads and duplicated the bridge over the existing rail line.
The project increased capacity, reduced transit times and improved traffic flow and safety.
The cost of the project was $171 million. The Australian Government contributed $85.5 million and the Victorian Government $85.5 million.
Construction commenced on 3 September 2010 and was completed on 30 April 2016.
