EARLY WORKS UNDERWAY ON ECHUCA-MOAMA BRIDGE (FED)
Early works on the Echuca-Moama Bridge project are kicking off, with test drilling for pylon placement now underway for the new bridge. Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Darren Chester said the project would deliver a much-needed second Murray River crossing in the region, bringing New South Wales and Victoria closer together. “This project is part of the Australian Government’s record $50 billion investment in infrastructure and is a critical piece of infrastructure for the region’s businesses and community,” Mr Chester said. “We’re getting on with building the second Murray River crossing-creating new jobs, and making it easier and safer for locals to get where they need to go.” Victorian State Member for Northern Victoria Jaclyn Symes said the new bridge would carry 8,000 vehicles per day.
