22 November, 2019Echuca-Moama Bridge Project


Drivers are one step closer to better roads and improved cross-border connections with major works on Stage 2 of the Echuca -Moama Bridge Project now complete.

Stage 2 involved the complete upgrade of Warren Street in Echuca, including:

  • four new flood relief bridges
  • a brand new 1.93km shared walking and cycling path.
  • a new roundabout
  • an extended right-hand turning lane into Homan Street and the Echuca Cemetery
  • a dedicated residential service road, creating safer access for local residents

The completion of Stage 2 marks a crucial step in what is currently the largest transport infrastructure project in Northern Victoria.

Warren Street is used as a key route connecting the historic Echuca Port Precinct to the Murray Valley Highway. The re-opening of Warren Street will boost capacity and allow more vehicles to travel between Echuca and Moama via High Street, Echuca.

With Stage 2 complete early works on Stage 3 will soon be underway. Boreholes will be drilled to test local ground conditions and identify the location of underground services before major works start early in the new year.

Stage 4 involves upgrading the Moama intersections to connect the Cobb Highway to the new Murray River bridge. Construction on this stage is expected to start in late 2019 and take up to 18 months to complete.

The $323.7 million Echuca-Moama Bridge Project is jointly funded by the Federal, Victorian and New South Wales governments, with Stage 4 delivered by Major Road Projects Victoria.
