This investment will deliver targeted upgrades on the Murray Valley Highway corridor, including a new Murray River road crossing at Swan Hill, addressing identified pinch points to increase the overall efficiency and safety of the corridor.
The Murray Valley Highway corridor is a strategic link for local industry and rural sectors to the manufacturing and distribution bases in larger regional centres and capital cities. As a result of economic and population growth in the Riverina, increased traffic volumes are causing safety and efficiency issues along the corridor.
Upgrades to this corridor, including a new Swan Hill bridge, are expected to improve freight efficiency, access and safety, and support local industry, tourism and the creation of local jobs.
The Australian Government has committed $80 million to this project, including $60 million towards the Swan Hill Bridge. ROSI funding is provided on the basis that the Australian Government contributes up to 80 per cent of the total cost, and the remainder is provided by state and territory governments, local government and/or the private sector.
The delivery schedule will be determined as planning on the project progresses and in consultation with the Victorian Government.
