Route alignment planning is taking place with the aim to take trucks traveling through Horsham on the Western Highway, Wimmera Highway and Henty Highway out of Horsham’s Central Activity District.
Another traffic bridge across the Wimmera River is one of Council’s key transport priorities, and HRCC committed $100,000 in its 2020-2021 Budget for a route feasibility study. The Commonwealth Government has also contributed $150,000 for Council to work with Regional Roads Victoria to determine if there is a possible location for a truck route and bridge.
Safety and amenity benefits within the Horsham urban area for residents and businesses, providing safer access to the retail/entertainment precinct. Freight efficiency for heavy vehicles currently negotiating multiple traffic lights through central Horsham.
