Echuca Moama Bridge River Crossing

Between $200 – $250 million is required to construct the second Echuca Moama bridge.

Substantial increases in tourist traffic, freight and population growth as well as the increased freight load requirements of new higher mass limited trucks has created the need for a second Echuca Moama Bridge Crossing. Many freight vehicles are forced to either use a longer route or switch to a less efficient older-style truck.

Construction of the second Echuca Moama bridge will deliver improved efficiency and reliability for freight transport, including modern freight vehicles, and will improve safety and convenience for all road users.
