Significant progress

Mr Chester said the fully duplicated road will save lives, improve productivity and reduce travel times for locals and visitors. "A better, safer Princes Highway will make a huge difference for local residents, freight operators and the visitor economy,"

"It's exciting to see significant progress on all three stages of the project between Traralgon and Sale. As road work continues, I urge everyone to be patient with reduced speed limits designed to keep construction workers safe as they do their jobs." Mr Chester said.
