More overtaking lanes for VIC-SA highway

Earthmoving company Cut and Fill has been awarded the contract to install new overtaking lanes along the Western Highway that links Victoria and South Australia, with work expected to begin later this month and be completed in November.

Federal Infrastructure and Transport Minister Anthony Albanese said the two new four-kilometre dual overtaking lanes will be constructed to the east and west of Pimpinio.

“We are building a better, safer Western Highway, with these latest overtaking lanes amongst the eleven we have or will be installing,” he said.

Other recent improvements to the Victorian side of the Western Highway include the strengthening of the bridge over the rail line at Wail along with the one located at Dadswells Bridge; upgrades to Pink Lake and Deep Lead rest areas; and construction of a new trailer exchange just outside Nhill.
