Read our proposed program of works

Thank you to everyone who participated in our community engagement last year. We’ve finalised a program of works for the Great Alpine Road between Wangaratta and Bruthen based on your feedback and other important information from key stakeholders.

The Australian and Victorian governments have committed $18 million for upgrades to the Great Alpine Road between Wangaratta and Bruthen. These works support the region’s tourism, timber, agriculture and freight industries.

Last year, we engaged the community along the road extensively and based on what you have told us, we’ve identified works that will improve route safety, accessibility and reliability for all road users. The full scope of work has been finalised, and includes:

  • Shoulder construction and sealing works between Wangaratta and Harrietville, and between Bruthen and Omeo.
  • Earthworks associated with road widening to reduce curves and improve sight distance.
  • Signage review to ensure consistency and accuracy.
  • Line marking, including yellow fog lines from Mount Hotham Airport to Omeo.
  • Sealing of slow vehicle pull overs and/or ambulance bays in six locations.
  • Road widening for 500m at Bullocky Creek and 400m between Hells Gate and Namestone Point.

Next steps:

  • We’re now implementing these works, with the full program of construction is expected to be completed by the end of the 2020/21 financial year.
  • As the projects progress, updates will be posted on the Great Alpine Road page on the VicRoads website.
  • If you would like to be kept up to date, register your interest at gippslandprojects@roads.vic.gov.au – be sure to include Great Alpine Road in the subject line to receive regular project bulletins.
