We’re upgrading the Western Highway between Ballarat and Stawell to get you where you need to be sooner and safer.


For this section of the Western Highway Upgrade, we will:

  • add two lanes in each direction with a central median to separate traffic
  • upgrade intersections to improve safety and move traffic more efficiently
  • build new access to the highway, with intersections that connect to local roads
  • build a bypass to the north of Great Western
  • build new bridges at Delahoy Road and Bests Road
  • add an underpass below Sandy Creek Road.

We have started early works, which include:

  • a comprehensive tree survey
  • environmental field surveys
  • investigations into potential environmental initiatives
  • investigations into potential community opportunities.
