High St in Echuca is set to undergo a $1.15 million upgrade to improve its condition.

Member for Rodney Paul Weller announced the project on Friday and said the stretch of road which leads into Heygarth St forms part of a key business and tourist route.

‘‘Ensuring it is safe and able to meet the growing demands for all road users is very important. Regular users of this section of roadway will know that its condition has been gradually deteriorating with the increase of traffic, particularly from the growing use by touring vehicles,’’ Mr Weller said.

The road works will be carried out between Eyre St and the Heygarth St roundabout, and will include replacing the cracked road surface on both lanes with new asphalt and line markings.

The works will begin this week and are expected to be complete within a month.
