The Western Highway is one of Victoria’s busiest rural highways as it connects Melbourne and Adelaide. The Highway is a key interstate link for freight and trade. Adding in a bypass will help improve road safety and will improve road safety and freight efficiency, while making Beaufort a better place to live and visit.
In 2017, VicRoads engaged with the community to identify potential bypass options. There are now two options, including one variation of each and VicRoads is going back to the community to discuss the options. The public's opinion will help make design decisions on the assessment of bypass options to be included in the Environment Effects Statement (EES) later in 2018.
