Work has officially begun on a new section of the Western Roads Upgrade project, which will see the construction of a new bridge with dual lanes running in each direction over the Princes Freeway.
The existing bridge that currently crosses the freeway will be demolished, while there will also be new access roads built as well as pedestrian and cycle paths.
The Western Roads Upgrade project is the Australian State of Victoria’s largest single investment to date in its road network, and the project will be carried out under a Public Private Partnership (P3) formula.
Eight high-priority road-building projects and an extensive 20-year rehabilitation and maintenance program form the Western Roads Upgrade that covers more than 800 kilometers of road to the west of Melbourne.
Present at the inauguration of works on this section of the project were Tim Pallas, Treasurer of Victoria; José Espinosa, CEO of Netflow; Damien Augustinus, Managing Director of Plenary; Allen Garner, CEO of Major Road Projects Authority; and Peter Ryan, Managing Director of WBHO.
