Facelift for Inverloch roads

ROAD works at Inverloch will be suspended over the Christmas holidays.

The works along the Bass Highway and Korumburra-Inverloch Road cost $7.3 million and include: the construction of a new roundabout at the intersection of Korumburra-Inverloch Road and Bass Highway; improvements to the existing Bass Highway/Inverloch-Venus Bay Road roundabout; construction of new turning lanes into Bear Street and Cashin Street; and construction of new access points into the cemetery, including a decided right turn lane.

At the same time, $2.194 million worth of repairs will be carried out at the same time on the Bass Highway and on the Korumburra-Inverloch Road to minimise the impact on road users travelling through the area.
The works are due to be finished around mid 2015, said Scott Lawrence, VicRoads Eastern Victoria regional director.

“VicRoads knows the Inverloch community had been calling for action to improve safety in this area as well as improve the condition of the Bass Highway, which is exactly what these upgrades will deliver,” he said.

Construction works will stop over the Christmas holidays until Sunday, January 4, 2015 to avoid disruption to local and tourism traffic over the busy Christmas holiday period.

“During this time the Bass Highway will be returned to normal operation.  A speed reduction is not anticipated however, we urge road users to take care travelling through this area,” Mr Lawrence said.

“When works recommence on Monday, January 5, road users should allow extra time to travel through the area.

“We understand that road works can be an inconvenience for motorists however, the optimal time to carry out road works is during the warm and dry weather conditions over summer.

“VicRoads thanks road users for their patience while these important road projects are carried out.”
