The Echuca to Moama Bridge connects Murray Valley Highway and Warren Street at Echuca with Cobb Highway at Perricoota Road in Moama. Transport for NSW and Major Road Projects Victoria oversaw the $324 million project.
The project is divided into four stages:
Stage One: Upgrade of the Murray Valley Highway and Warren Street intersection. This involved replacing three dangerous ‘Y’ intersections with a new roundabout at the intersection of the Murray Valley Highway and Warren Street.
Stage Two: Warren Street upgrade. This section involved building
- four new flood relief bridges
- a new roundabout at Campaspe Esplanade
- an extended right-hand turning lane into Homan Street for local residents and the Echuca Cemetery
- new service roads for residents, and
- a new shared walking and cycling path.
Stage Three: Construction of a new link road between Echuca and Moama, involving:
- a new two-lane road (one lane in each direction) with sealed shoulders north of the new roundabout on Warren Street in Echuca to the Cobb Highway in Moama
- new bridge over the Murray River and floodplain
- new bridge over the Campaspe River and floodplain
- two new flood relief bridges
- safety barriers
- noise walls
- a new safe and scenic shared walking and cycling path along the route and over the new bridges.
Stage Four: This stage involves upgrading the Moama intersections to connect the Cobb Highway to the new Murray River bridge, and is being delivered by Transport for NSW.
