Upgrade of an existing way side stop on the southbound carriageway on the Calder Highway, 16 kilometres south of Bendigo.

The estimated cost of the project is $8.2 million. The Australian Government is contributing $6,150,000 and the Victorian Government $2,050,000.
Construction is expected to commence mid 2017 and to be completed late 2017.
