As part of the largest infrastructure project in northern Victoria, we’re building a second Murray River crossing to connect Echuca and Moama to make it quicker and easier for you to travel across the Campaspe and Murray rivers.

Overview

Echuca in Victoria and Moama in New South Wales are connected by a single Murray River Bridge that was opened in 1878.

Together with NSW Roads and Maritime Services, we’re building a new bridge to connect the Murray Valley Highway and Warren Street at Echuca with the Cobb Highway at Perricoota Road in Moama.

The $323.7 million Echuca-Moama Bridge Project is jointly funded by the Australian, Victorian and NSW governments.

Watch this video to take a virtual fly-through of the new river crossing.

Project stages

The project is being built in four stages:

  • Stage 1: Upgrade of the Murray Valley Highway and Warren Street intersection - completed in mid-2018
  • Stage 2: Warren Street upgrade - planned for completion in late 2019
  • Stage 3: Construction of new bridges over the Campaspe and Murray rivers - scheduled to commence in early 2020
  • Stage 4: Intersection upgrades to the Cobb Highway, Meninya Street and Perricoota Road intersection – scheduled to commence in late 2019 (to be delivered by NSW Roads and Maritime Services).

The following map shows the route of the new river crossing and the project stages.

Environment Effects Statement

In 2013, an Environment Effects Statement (EES) assessment was undertaken.

In March 2016, the Minister for Planning released his assessment of the EES inquiry and the advisory committee report and approved the Mid West option.
