South Gippsland Highway to undergo $3.64 million upgrade

Wednesday, 30 July 2014
Four sections of the South Gippsland Highway will be fixed as part of a $3.64 million works blitz announced today by Premier Denis Napthine and Liberal Candidate for Bass Brian Paynter. 
Dr Napthine said a total of 3.1 kilometres of the South Gippsland Highway would be strengthened and restored between Caldermeade Road and Sybella Avenue.
“While patching has been carried out in the past to keep the road operative, this funding will enable these sections of road to be strengthened, providing a longer-term solution for motorists in this area,” Dr Napthine said.
“The South Gippsland Highway is a key section of dual carriageway that provides important linkages through to Phillip Island and Gippsland.
“Building a better road network is a key part of the Victorian Coalition Government’s strategy to improve road safety  in Victoria,” Dr Napthine said. 
Mr Paynter said he welcomed the investment in the South Gippsland Highway.
“The South Gippsland Highway is a vital artery for the Bass community, so strengthening this road for the future is fantastic news,” Mr Paynter said.
“This announcement is part of the Coalition Government’s plan to build a better Victoria by delivering new job creating infrastructure projects, and upgrading and maintaining our roads.”
Road works on the South Gippsland Highway are planned to commence in November 2014 and be completed in the drier summer months.
The Victorian Coalition Government’s 2014-15 Budget provided an extra $130 million over four years to repair and restore Victorian roads. This comes on top of the $170 million boost for maintenance over three years in 2013.
