Extra $191m for Princess Highway duplication in Victoria

A project to duplicate the Princes Highway between Traralgon and Sale has received additional funding of $191 million from the Federal and Victorian governments.

The duplication is one of 21 shovel-ready infrastructure projects and urgent road safety upgrades in Victoria that were announced this week.

The Commonwealth is investing $320.3 million in the 21 projects, while the Victorian Government’s share of the package is $205.5 million.

In related news, a state-by-state breakdown of projects funded under the Federal Government’s $500 million Targeted Road Safety Works Program has gone online.

The program makes funding available for projects on state or territory roads that can be completed within 12 months and which improve road-user safety.
