Moe truck stop & gateway project

We’re building a Moe truck stop and upgrading the western entrance as part of a $2.96 million project jointly funded by the Victorian and Australian Government.

Project background

This project is part of a strategy to provide truck rest areas as a way to reduce driver fatigue and risk of crashing along the Princes Highway between Longwarry and the News South Wales border.

About the project

The project will feature:
  • Five new truck stop bays with safe exit and entry points onto the freeway and formalising two existing truck bays on Lloyd Street
  • Significant upgrades to the existing freeway exit ramp into Moe including improved street lighting and a right turn lane into the new truck stop
  • Reconstruction of the Old Gippstown car park to include parking bays for long vehicles; extra disabled car parks and signs to ensure other road uses are kept separate from freight
  • Extensive landscaping of the western entrance to Moe which will include trees and shrubs to screen the trucks stop as well as indigenous and native plants to provide an aesthetic and welcoming entry to Moe

Community involvement

We’re working closely with key stakeholders including the Latrobe City Council, freight industry and local community groups.

What happens next?

Pre-construction works are expected to begin in July with construction to begin late 2017.
