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.

Stage 3

Stage 3 of the Echuca-Moama Bridge Project involves building a new link road between Echuca and Moama. The new link road includes:

  • a new two-lane road (one lane in each direction) with sealed shoulders north of the new roundabout on Warren Street in Echuca to the Cobb Highway in Moama
  • new bridge over the Murray River and floodplain
  • new bridge over the Campaspe River and floodplain
  • two new flood relief bridges
  • safety barriers
  • noise walls
  • a new safe and scenic shared walking and cycling path along the route and over the new bridges.

The bridges will integrate with the surrounding natural environment, with a simple and clean ‘bridges through the treetops’ design, and clear spans over the two rivers will minimise environmental disturbance to the waterway and aquatic habitat.

McConnell Dowell has been awarded the contract to build Stage 3. Works will commence in early 2020. We are currently expecting the project to be completed in late 2022.

Site investigations

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 site investigations will involve mobile temporary drilling sites at specific locations near the Campaspe river, Victoria Park and both sides of the Murray River.

Habitat improvement works

In preparation for the start of major works on Stage 3, we’re creating additional habitat hollows in Victoria Park to provide more shelter for local wildlife.

From Monday 25 November through until mid-December 2019, we’ll install two types of hollows, including traditional nest boxes and carved hollows.
