THE Victorian Government has announced a $780 million investment to rebuild, repair and resurface more than 1500 kilometres of roads across the regional Victoria across the next eight months.

More than 1300 individual projects are planned across some of Victoria’s busiest and most important transport and travel routes, including the Western Highway, Hume Freeway, Murray Valley Highway, Hamilton Highway and South Gippsland Highway.

The roads set to be targeted under the maintenance blitz have been selected based upon expert inspections and community feedback, ensuring that works are delivered where local drivers need them most.

Locally, there will be $6.6 million of work across the Murrindindi Shire between now and mid-2023, including $895,000 project to completely rebuild a 600 metre section of the Melba Highway near Glenburn, $738,000 to rebuild a 600 metre section of Whittlesea-Yea Road near Flowerdale, and more than 23 kilometres of road resurfacing works along multiple sections of Broadford-Flowerdale Road, Goulburn Valley Highway, Whittlesea-Yea Road and the Melba Highway, a combined investment of over $5 million.

The works across Victoria will harness the latest technology and methods to ensure that the road maintenance program delivers the best results for Victorians, while also continuing to support an estimated 1800 jobs.
