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.
Flood relief bridges taking shape
Our construction crews installed 70 concrete bridge beams on the two flood relief bridges at the western end of Warren Street, while another 74 beams will be craned into place for the two flood relief bridges located at the eastern end of Warren Street during April.
In March, we completed all piling activities, with a total of 276 concrete piles installed as support for all four of the flood relief bridges.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding while we carried out these vital works.
The new flood relief bridges will be able to better handle heavy vehicles and will replace the existing, narrow crossings along Warren Street, which are nearly 80 years old.
The flood relief bridges are expected to be completed by mid-2019.
Local schools partnership
Over the past 12 months, we’re proud to have been involved with local schools to help bring parts of their geography curriculum to life.
Throughout 2019, students from Echuca College and St Joseph’s College will be involved in projects that encourage them to explore the connections between their environment and the community.
Our project team is partnering with the schools and the students to help them understand how the new river crossing is being built to consider these aspects, and how impacts are being managed.
Acknowledging those that came before us
Recently, representatives of the Yorta Yorta Nation Aboriginal Corporation, Winslow Constructors and our project team held a ceremony to celebrate our valuable partnership.
We created some special artwork for our construction site fencing in recognition of the Yorta Yorta people, who are the traditional owners of the land that we are re-shaping.
