More improvement works on the Western Highway are set to commence in the coming weeks.

Significant roadworks are currently underway near Pink Lake, west of Dimboola, and upcoming work includes safety improvements on an intersection east of Nhill and pavement improvements to the road surface near the Wail overpass.

Next Tuesday, work is scheduled to start to realign the Western Highway at the Nhill-Jeparit road intersection to increase the distance between the road and the adjacent Melbourne to Adelaide railway line to improve safety for road users waiting to cross.

The works will include pavement widening along the Western Highway, updated signage, pavement rehabilitation, new line marking, and new raised reflective pavement markers.

Rural Roads Victoria will also be undertaking improvement work on 830 metres of the highway to the north of the Wail overpass that will see extensive work to replace the top and bottom layers of the road.

Drivers travelling between Dimboola and Horsham will experience some disruption while this work is carried out, with electronic message boards to advise of works, speed limits of 40km/h through the work site for the safety of motorists and road workers, traffic signals at some locations to help drivers through the work site, and amber flashing lights at some places to warn drivers of the worksite at night.

Other significant road works currently underway on the district highways include a 7.5 kilometre stretch of the Henty Highway north of Horsham, which should be completed by mid-2022.
