Roads Minister Jaala Pulford said the Victorian Government was committed to investing the future of regional Victoria.
“That’s why we’ve taken action to fix some of the worst roads in the south west, thanks to a dedicated $40 million package to upgrade narrow roads,” Ms. Pulford said.
“Works on Casterton-Apsley Road, Coleraine-Edenhope Road and Warrnambool-Caramut Road are now complete, which I know will be welcome news to the people who travel on them daily.”
Ms. Pulford said roads in the region were previously too narrow and damaged for two cars to pass each other while keeping their tyres on a sealed surface.
“The road surface has been completely rebuilt and widened to a full lane in each direction, the drainage has been improved and new line marking has been installed,” Ms. Pulford said.
“Works have already been delivered on Foxhow Road, Skipton Road, Myamyn-Macarthur Road, Ayresford Road, Timboon-Nullawarre Road, Inverleigh-Winchelsea Road and Inverleigh-Shelford Road.”
Member for Western Victoria Gayle Tierney said the roads are now wider, stronger and safer.
“I know people who rely on these key routes every day will definitely notice the difference,” Ms. Tierney said.
“With work now complete, I want to thank the community for their patience while we delivered these vital upgrades.”
