The $635 million Warrego Highway upgrade is progressing, with the contract awarded to deliver the second phase of the $40 million safety works between Oakey and Miles in Queensland.
Construction has begun on the new road project in Queanbeyan, New South Wales, which will allow drivers to avoid up to 19 intersections and three sets of traffic lights.
The Victorian Government has announced its preferred tenderer to deliver the upgrade, which is aimed at reducing congestion on eight key arterial routes in Melbourne’s west.
Roads and Maritime Services is now inviting registrations of interest to tender for the project, which will see a section of the Pacific Highway at Lisarow upgraded to two lanes in each direction.
The funding from the Australian and Federal Governments is aimed at improving safety on the popular tourist route, which has seen 213 recorded crashed in the five years to 2016.
