Loddon Valley Highway works complete

Works to repair water damage across the Loddon Valley Highway has been completed.

Regional Roads Victoria (RRV) has completed ‘rehabilitation’ works on a one-kilometre stretch of the Loddon Valley Highway, giving smoother journeys to road users.

Drivers travelling around Appin South (just south of Kerang) will have a more reliable journey across what was a damaged section of road.

Crews rebuilt the section south of Kerang, between Appin South Road and Marcorna Road, stabilising the road surface and adding a new pavement layer before a full resurfacing.

RRV says the more than 1,500 vehicles who use the road each day, including hundreds of heavy vehicles, will benefit from the works.

These new works come in addition to the works on the Highway between Worsley Road and McPhail Road in Tragowel and between Fentons Road and Mincha-Canary Island Road in Loddon Vale.

The Kerang region suffered record-breaking rainfall last October, with significant water damage suffered by stretches of road along the highway.

The Victorian government is investing an additional $2.8 billion over 10 years into road maintenance and renewal works, including flood recovery.
