Ten years after the Hume Highway bypass at Albury first opened to traffic, figures show an average of around 44,000 people use the road each day.
Albury MP Greg Aplin said the bypass was this month celebrating a major milestone and announced Lend Lease would hand the road maintenance back to Roads and Maritime Services.
“The Hume Highway bypass between Albury and Wodonga has benefited countless motorists in the past 10 years, with improved travel times between the major cities and greater safety,” Mr Aplin said.
“Ten years on, maintenance of the bypass, as well as the responsibility of vegetation and infrastructure has been handed from Lend Lease back to Roads and Maritime Services.
“Maintenance is an essential part of the operation of any road, especially a major thoroughfare like the Hume Highway bypass, to ensure the safety of the thousands of motorists who travel on it.
He said the Lend Lease would continue to work closely with Roads and Maritime to ensure the handover period ran smoothly and that any outstanding work was completed during this time.
