Project Description

I am proud of the funding we have delivered for important road upgrades across the Corangamite electorate under the Bridges Renewal Program, Roads to Recovery and the Black Spot Program.

The Morrison Liberal Government has also committed $4.9m to upgrade the intersection of Birregurra-Forrest Road and Colac-Lorne/Deepdene Roads and $5m for a safety boost for Hamilton Highway.

We have provided $4,675,500 to upgrade three vital bridges in Corangamite.
  • Moggs Creek Bridge Replacement, $1.985m
  • Wye River Bridge Replacement, $2.39m
  • Pitfield-Cressy Rd Bridge Replacement, $300,000
