Project Description

This project will complete the duplication of the Princes Highway East between Traralgon and Sale by duplicating the remaining two sections of the highway, totalling approximately 12.1 kilometres, known as the Flynn and Kilmany sections. The project will construct two additional lanes to provide a four-lane dual carriageway with a central median.

Benefits

The additional lanes and upgrades will increase capacity on the highway, reducing travel times for freight, commuter and tourist traffic. Consistent driving conditions for the full length of the highway between Traralgon and Sale will reduce the number and severity of crashes. Improved connectivity will deliver an enhanced tourist and visitor experience.

Funding

The Australian Government has committed up to $132 million to complete the duplication from Traralgon to Sale.
