Natimuk Road: road works underway

Regional Roads Victoria (RRV) will rebuild almost 500m of Natimuk Road in Horsham to provide a smoother journey for locals and freight operators.

The section of the road between Bennett Road and Hillary Street will be rebuilt and kerb and channelling replaced during the 10-week period which started on 12 October.

Traffic management will be in place during construction, which will be carried out between 7.30am and 5.30pm on week days, with the possibility of some Saturday morning works.

The speed limit in the area will be reduced to 40km/h. While detours are unlikely to be required, motorists may face up to a five-minute delay during construction.

The Natimuk Road school crossing will also be moved 60m to the east to improve pedestrian safety in the area.

This project, which is part of the Victorian Government’s $425 million investment into regional roads is the result of RRV receiving feedback from people travelling along this section of the road, as well as residents nearby, due to the noise caused by heavy vehicles travelling along the damaged section of the road.

Access to residents homes will not be impacted during the 10-week period.

RRV has been engaging with Horsham Rural City Council and the Horsham West and Haven Primary School, which are both supportive of the works.
