Keeping Colac open for business

18 April, 2019Princes Highway West - Winchelsea to Colac


The 80-year-old Barongarook Creek bridge in Colac is being replaced so it can meet the demands of today’s traffic volumes and modern freight vehicles.

We’re also building a temporary bridge so that when we start work on the new bridge, we can keep traffic moving on this busy stretch of road.

Works on this innovative temporary bridge, to keep Colac open for business are now complete.

This week we’ve switched traffic onto the temporary bridge.

As part of the new bridge, we’ll also be building dedicated walking and cycling paths.

The new bridge is a key part of the wider Princes Highway West project that’s building more than 35km of extra lanes and new intersections.
