Western Highway Duplication
Buangor to Ararat, Mt.Langi Ghiran
Poli Urban has prepared a visual impact assessment for the Western Highway Duplication, which includes a 12.5km section between Buangor and Ararat, Mt.Langi Ghiran. The Development includes an upgrade to two lanes in each direction, with additional turning lanes, new bridges over Hopkins River and the railway line, and an interchange with entry and exit ramps.
As the principal road link between Melbourne and Adelaide, the Western Highway serves interstate trade between Victoria and South Australia. With traffic expected to increase in the future, the Australian and Victorian governments have committed over half a billion dollars to upgrade the Western Highway through various stages of works expected to be completed by 2020.
