Echuca-Moama bridge moves to stage three construction

Major works on Stage two of the Echuca-Moama Bridge Project were completed in November 2019 and preparations are now underway for stages three and four.

Stage two was a major component of the project and involved the complete upgrade of Warren Street in Echuca.

Construction involved four new flood relief bridges, a brand new shared walking and cycling path, a new roundabout, an extended right hand turning lane into Homan Street and a dedicated residential service road.

Major works for Stage three will soon be underway delivered by Major Road Projects Victoria. This stage includes construction of new bridges over the Campaspe and Murray rivers.

Stage four will be delivered by Transport for NSW and will involve upgrading the Moama intersections to connect the Cobb Highway to the new Murray River bridge.

The $323.7 million Echuca-Moama Bridge Project is jointly funded by the Federal, Victorian and NSW Governments. It involves the construction of a second Murray River crossing to connect Echuca and Moama to make it quicker and easier to travel across the Campaspe and Murray rivers.

The project is due for completion in 2022.
