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 on Stage 2

Warren Street in Echuca, between the Murray Valley Highway and High Street, was fully opened to traffic on Saturday 23 November 2019, marking the end of major works on Stage 2.

Update on Stage 3

Construction on the vital second Murray River crossing is a step closer, following McConnell Dowell being awarded the contract to deliver Stage 3 of the Echuca-Moama Bridge Project.

From late November to mid-December, we’re undertaking site investigations in preparation for the start of major construction on Stage 3, which will begin in early 2020.

The purpose of these works is to assess local ground conditions and help inform the design and construction methodology for Stage 3. The works will involve mobile temporary drilling sites at specific locations near the Campaspe river, Victoria Park and both sides of the Murray River.

Find out more about what we’re doing as part of Stage 3 of the project.

During this time, we’re also creating additional habitat hollows in Victoria Park to provide more shelter for local wildlife.

Find out more information about these habitat works on our Environment page.

Update on Stage 4

Excell Gray Bruni has been awarded the contract to deliver Stage 4 of the Echuca-Moama Bridge Project, which involves upgrading the Moama intersections to connect the Cobb Highway to the new bridge over the Murray River.

Local schools partnership

Over the past 12 months, we’re proud to have continued our involvement with local schools to help bring parts of their curriculum to life.

So far in 2019, we're partnered with St Joseph’s College, Echuca East Primary School and Shepparton’s Goulburn Valley Grammar School.

Students have been gaining valuable insight into this once-in-a-generation infrastructure project, and how the various environmental, sustainability, engineering, community and construction considerations are managed.
