Dangerous curves on Anthony's Cutting a thing of the past

Upgrade to a dangerous section of road on Victoria’s Western Highway has been completed

June 28, 2011

Tight curves and steep hills on Victoria’s Western Highway through Anthony’s Cutting are a thing of the past after the completion of the project to realign the infamous section.

Victorian Roads Minister Terry Mulder says the new freeway, which took 18 months to build and has a speed limit of 110km/h, will provide safer road conditions and is expected to reduce travel times and transport costs.

"There has been a history of crashes through this difficult stretch of road," Mulder says.

The Federal Government committed $160 million towards the project, with the Victorian Government providing $40 million.

The route carries 25,000 vehicles and 4,000 trucks each day.
