Federal Member for Gippsland Darren Chester (pictured) says the Princes Highway duplication project has reached a major milestone with traffic switched to the new section at Flynn.

The $250 million final three stages of the project is 80% funded by the Federal Government with the State Government providing 20%.

Mr Chester said the fully duplicated road will save lives, improve productivity and reduce travel times for locals and visitors.

“A better, safer Princes Highway will make a huge difference for local residents, freight operators and the visitor economy,” Mr Chester said.

“It’s exciting to see significant progress on all three stages of the project between Traralgon and Sale.

“As roadwork continues, I urge everyone to be patient with reduced speed limits designed to keep construction workers safe as they do their jobs.”
