Sand Road contractor named

Work on the $31.2 million interchange at the intersection of Sand Road and the Princes Freeway East at Longwarry is expected to start soon, with the contract to build the project now awarded.
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development Warren Truss today announced Cut & Fill Pty Ltd will deliver the project.

“Upgrading this key intersection on one of the region’s busiest freight corridors will greatly improve safety and efficiency, boosting the local and regional economy,” Mr Truss said.

Federal Member for McMillan Russell Broadbent, who has been fighting for the upgrade a long time, said the existing intersection will be upgraded into a full freeway interchange with new entry and exit ramps to allow motorists to enter and exit the freeway and connect to other roads.
