Travelling through Victoria’s north east alpine region has been made safer and more reliable, with important landslip prevention works now complete on several key roads.
Minister for Roads and Road Safety Ben Carroll said the works have safeguarded the road and reduced the risks of future landslips disrupting the journeys of locals and tourists.
Four locations have been excavated on the Great Alpine Road and Mount Buller Road, and the lower side of the road rebuilt with reinforced materials, while drainage infrastructure has also been improved.
Road realignment and drainage improvement works have been completed at two locations on Bogong High Plains Road culvert works.
Last year crews repaired or replaced more than 60 culverts across the Great Alpine, Mount Buller, Mount Stirling, Bogong High Plains and Bright-Tawonga roads.
The essential works have been delivered as part of the Victorian Government’s $124 million Building Works package, with $32.8 million going towards preventing landslips on important tourist routes and supporting local jobs across the state.
