Echuca-Moama Bridge project

Roads and Maritime Services and the Victorian Major Road Projects Authority are building a second Murray River crossing to connect Echuca and Moama. The $280 million project is being funded by the Australian, Victorian and NSW governments

In March 2016 the Victorian Minister for Planning approved the Echuca-Moama Bridge project under the Environment Effects Act. The project was approved in NSW in April 2016.

This approval allowed Roads and Maritime and the Major Road Projects Authority to finalise development of the preferred Mid-West option for the bridge route, which will connect the Murray Valley Highway and Warren Street at Echuca with the Cobb Highway at Perricoota Road in Moama. This will be completed as part of stage four of the project.

The bridge and Victorian intersection works are being project managed by the Major Road Projects Authority with support from Roads and Maritime. Roads and Maritime is project managing the Moama intersection works
