Reconstruction of the Riverina Highway Site Tour


The Albury and Upper Murray Groups invite you to attend a site visit for the reconstruction of the Riverina Highway at the Hume Weir.

This project provides an excellent opportunity to discuss current geotechnical aspects of road construction.

The Riverina Highway is a state road that connects Lake Hume Village and Deniliquin, via Albury and was constructed over several decades with final sealing completed in the 1960s.

This road, east of Albury, mainly serves a local access function with limited strategic importance. Recent consideration has been given to the need to improve safety on the existing alignment 0.750km to 3.22km west of Bethanga Bridge, a total length of 2.46km.

The primary benefits resulting from the proposed upgrades to Riverina Highway in this section of the road are improved road safety and a safer road environment.

Project does not involve major realignment. The scope includes widening of the existing road (including minor centreline shift), minor pavement overlay and cross section elevation adjustment and flattening of batters and removal of hazards within the clear zone, if any.

PPE Required:

  • Hard Hat
  • Steel Capped Boots
  • Safety Glasses
