Sturt Highway rest area now open


A new $130,000 rest area at Cullulleraine in Victoria is now open.

 

A new truck stop on the Sturt Highway in Victoria’s north-west has opened.

The $130,000 rest area located in Cullulleraine can accommodate two trucks up to B-double in size.

Minor works such as line marking and guidepost will be completed soon.

Victorian State MP for for Mildura Peter Crisp says truck drivers will no longer have to park on the side of the highway.

"The Sturt Highway is a major thoroughfare for trucks travelling between Sydney and Adelaide, with over 1,700 vehicles using this road each day," Crisp says.

"This project will greatly lessen the number of tired drivers being out on the road. The fewer fatigued truck drivers behind the wheel, the safer our roads are for everyone."

The project was funded under the Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Program, which finances new rest areas and upgrades to existing sites.
