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.

Overview

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 was awarded the contract to build Stage 3. Works started in March 2020 and are expected to be completed by mid-2022.

Habitat improvement works

During late 2019, we installed two types of additional habitat hollows in Victoria Park: traditional nest boxes and carved hollows to provide more shelter for local wildlife. This was in preparation for the start of major works on Stage 3.
