The contract for the upgrade of the Cobb Highway’s Meninya Street and Perricoota Road intersections at Moama has been awarded.
Excell Gray Bruni has been selected to build the intersections after a competitive tender process, called in April this year.
Work on the New South Wales intersection is expected to start in December and be completed in August 2021, with the new Murray River crossing expected to be complete in 2022.
The project is being carried out in partnership with Major Road Projects Victoria, which is managing the first three stages of the project.
The Murray Valley Highway and Warren Street intersection upgrade in Echuca was completed in mid-2018 as stage one of the project.
The Warren Street upgrade, part of stage two, is almost complete, while the new bridge over the Campaspe and Murray rivers, stage three of the project, is anticipated to start in early 2020.
The $320 million Echuca-Moama Bridge project is jointly funded by the Federal, NSW and Victorian Governments.
Parliamentary Secretary for Regional Roads and Infrastructure Chris Gulaptis said this important upgrade will provide a key link to a safer and more efficient crossing of the Murray River between Moama in NSW and Echuca in Victoria.
“The Echuca-Moama Bridge is used every day by so many people, both commuters and freight operators, and they’ve been crying out for upgrades to improve safety and reliability, so it’s really exciting that we’re one step closer to delivering that,” Mr. Gulaptis said.
