The Victorian Government has today announced its preferred route for a second river crossing in Echuca-Moama.
The mid-west route has been selected as the government's preferred option, ahead of options 2A and 2B.
Deputy Premier Peter Ryan said the mid-west alignment had the least environmental and cultural heritage impacts.
The route starts at Murray Valley Hwy, heads north-east along Warren St, before diverting across the Campaspe River and across the former Echuca High School site, through to the proposed location for a new bridge.
Mr Ryan said the Environmental Effects Statement would continue, centered around the mid-west option.
He also pledged $4.5 million to commence intial works and to build a roundabout at the intersection of the Murray Valley Hwy and Warren St.
Mr Ryan also promised more funding announcements in the lead up to the Victorian Election on November 29.
