The South Australian Government will fund $56m towards upgrading the heavy vehicle bypass in Eudunda.
According to the State Government, the project will improve grain freight movements and reduce costs. The bypass will link the Worlds End and Thiele Highways, filling a missing link in the state’s 26-metre B-double network.
Increasing B-double access and reducing the need for heavy vehicles to travel through Eudunda will significantly improve the efficiency of freight movements, especially for grain,” said SA Transport and Infrastructure Minister, Stephen Mullighan.
Jonathon Wilson, General Manager of Logistics and Commercial Relations for grain transport specialist, Viterra, added. “The bypass allows higher productivity vehicles to access Eudunda and Robertstown, making it easier and less expensive for both export and domestic customers to move grain all year round.”
The works, due to begin this week, are also expected to upgrade access to the Viterra silo and bunker sites.
