As part of the largest transport 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.

Update - June 2021

We’re now building a second river crossing to connect Echuca and Moama, making it quicker and easier for you to travel across the Campaspe and Murray rivers.

What we’re doing and when
Stage 3

Works are progressing well on Stage 3. This month we’ll continue building the main span of the bridge across the Murray River. We'll also continue:

  • installing barriers and decks on the bridge approaches
  • earthworks for drainage and future landscaping
  • building the new walking and cycling path through Victoria Park
  • delivering materials and equipment to our work sites.
Stage 4

In Moama, we’ve finished relocating services and are now building the new Meninya Street intersection in the Moama Lions Park. We’ll also continue:

  • installing new stormwater pipes along Perricoota Road and connecting them to Francis Street
  • completing the access to the Moama Marketplace loading dock
  • works to temporarily widen for the Cobb Highway/Perricoota Road intersection.

All works will take place from 7am to 6pm, Monday to Friday and 7am to 1pm, Saturdays.

Out of hours works

Some works may need to be undertaken out-of-hours. If this is happening near you, we'll let you know in advance.

The timing of these works may change depending on weather and site conditions.

The final beam is now installed on the new bridge over the Campaspe River.

Traffic changes

Local access changes in Moama

So we can safely build the new bridge and connections into Moama, all public traffic access to Boundary Road will remain closed.

While works on these local roads continue, there'll also be temporary closures affecting the pedestrian refuges on Meninya Street, Cobb Highway, Perricoota Road, and the slip lane turning left into Perricoota Road.

During construction we expect a higher level of traffic at this intersection between 8.00am to 9.30am and 2.30pm to 4.00pm, Monday to Friday. We encourage you to plan your journey in advance and allow extra travel time.

We’ll continue to keep you updated on any changes to pedestrian access around our work zones. Pedestrians and cyclists can access Moama Marketplace and Cemetery Road via the signposted paths on Boundary Road. Please take extra care and always follow the directions of traffic controllers while work is underway.

Changes for river users

Until early November 2021, there'll be changes in place on the Murray River. Vessel operators are advised to exercise caution when navigating and to pay attention to signage and buoyage near our works. Transport for NSW (Maritime) have also introduced a four (4) knot speed limit.

For more information about these changes, please contact the Transport for NSW (Maritime Infoline) on 131 236 from 8.30am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday, or 8.30am to 4.30pm on weekends and public holidays.

Warren Street and Campaspe Esplanade

Improved walking and cycling access on Warren Street

We’ve built a temporary walking and cycling path on the northern side of Warren Street to make it safer and easier for you to get to and from the Port precinct, High Street and Dickson Street, and your local schools and shops while we build Stage 3.

The temporary path connects to the existing walking and cycling path via a new underpass that links both sides of Warren Street and will remain in place until the new permanent path is connected and opened in 2021.

Changes to Victoria Park and Scenic Drive access

For the construction of the new river crossing, we’ve changed the way you access Victoria Park and Scenic Drive so we can start major construction for the new bridges over the Campaspe and Murray rivers.

These changes will remain in place until mid-2022.

The map below shows you how you can find your way around the area.
