Project description

The Toowoomba to Seymour corridor, including the Goulburn Valley Highway, is a critical link in Australia’s freight transport network. It contributes to the competitiveness of Australia’s agricultural and mining sectors by opening up access to essential freight networks in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria. This investment will support growing agricultural and tourist industries in the region by providing improved access for High Productivity Freight Vehicles and improving the safety and efficiency of the road network.

Works in Tranche 1 will include: 

  • Safety barriers between Seymour and Shepparton - This project will install 175km of flexible safety barriers on the Goulburn Valley Highway between Seymour and Shepparton.

  • Scoping and development - This project will involve scoping work to develop a prioritised program of works for future tranches.


  • Improved road safety for all road users

  • Improved connectivity between people with jobs and services, and goods with markets

  • Improved accessibility and connectivity of road networks


The Australian Government is contributing $95.5 million towards this $135.5 million project.


Scoping and development works for the corridor started in mid 2021. Tranche 1 construction works started in late 2021.
