DRYSDALE BYPASS

It was a pleasure on Friday to spend some time with the Premier in Bellarine. Amongst other announcements, the Premier and I visited the site of the Drysdale bypass to celebrate the start of works. Uncle Bryon of the Wathaurong provided the welcome to country, and we also welcomed members of the Drysdale Clifton Springs Community Association on the day. I take this opportunity to congratulate and thank the association for their ongoing input and support of the project, including their now publicly announced support for the traffic lights. Importantly construction company Decmil Group are commencing those works right now and will have the full paving of the way for the major construction works in September. The Drysdale bypass has been talked about for 40 years, and thanks to the Andrews government this major $117 million project is now being delivered.
