New bridge over Barongarook Creek open
The Princes Highway West duplication is a step closer to completion, with traffic now driving on the new bridge over Barongarook Creek in Colac East.
The 80-year-old Barongarook Creek bridge in Colac was replaced so it can meet the demands of today’s traffic volumes and modern freight vehicles.
The new bridge is made of concrete and steel.
As part of this project, we constructed a temporary bridge, so that traffic could continue moving on this busy stretch of road. This innovative solution allowed us to keep Colac open for business.
As part of the new bridge, we’ll also be building dedicated walking and cycling paths.
The project is due to be complete at the end of 2019.
See the Princes Highway West project page for more information.
