Gippsland road upgrades

The Australian and Victorian Governments have committed $88 million for upgrades to major roads in Gippsland.

These upgrades will improve safety and reliability along the roads as well as support local businesses, create job opportunities and stimulate tourism and growth in the region.

Project details 

The Gippsland road upgrades include:

  • a $50 million investment will see upgrades along 300 kilometres of the Princes Highway from Sale to the New South Wales border
  • $18 million is being invested along 282 kilometres of the Great Alpine Road, from Bruthen in East Gippsland to Wangaratta in  north-eastern Victoria
  • a $10 million boost to the Monaro Highway will be for improvements from Cann River to the New South Wales border
  • $10 million is being invested for safety improvements along 64 kilometres of the Hyland Highway from Traralgon to Yarram

Works are expected to begin in late 2017 once community and industry consultation has been completed.

Have your say

We’re running a series of drop-in sessions throughout May to get your input on the road projects and help us determine the best options.

Find out when these are taking place.

You can also join in the conversation online at engageVicRoads in mid May to provide feedback via our interactive map.

Once we’ve collected all of your feedback, we’ll present this to you along with proposed improvements to get further input.

Improvements might include:

  • flexible safety barrier and guard rail
  • slow vehicle pull over bays and overtaking lanes
  • lane widening
  • pedestrian and cycling facilities
  • intersection improvements
  • sealing of road shoulders
  • road pavement restoration
