The project upgraded a 10km section of the Midland Highway between Kempton and Melton Mowbray in two stages. Stage 1 upgraded a 4.4km section from north of Kempton to Melton Mowbray. Stage 2 upgraded the 5.7km section from north of Kempton to south of Kempton including the junctions and access roads to Kempton.
The upgrade of the Midland Highway (Kempton to Melton Mowbray) will deliver significant safety benefits, in particular, a reduction in the incidence of head-on crashes.
The project will achieve a minimum 3 star AusRAP rating on this section of the Midland Highway.
The Australian Government committed $9,448,000 to Stage 2 of this project with the Tasmanian Government contributing the balance.
Scoping of the project was completed in mid 2015. Construction on Stage 2 commenced on June 2016 and was completed in May 2017.
