Project Description

The investment will deliver targeted upgrades on the Goulburn Valley Highway corridor between Seymour in Victoria and the New South Wales border.

Benefits

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 Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.

These upgrades will address identified pinch points in the corridor to improve throughput. They are also expected to increase access for higher productivity freight vehicles, leading to an overall increase in the efficiency and safety of the corridor. Upgrades to this corridor are expected to support local industry and the creation of local jobs.

Funding

The Australian Government has committed $510 million towards the Toowoomba to Seymour Corridor, of which $300 million has been committed to New South Wales, $160 million to Victoria, and $50 million to Queensland.

Timetable

The delivery schedule will be determined as planning on the project progresses and in consultation with the Victorian Government.
