BASS MP Brian Paynter celebrated the opening
of the Koo Wee Rup bypass last week with members of the Koo Wee Rup community.
The road now connects Healesville-Koo Wee Rup Road and the South Gippsland Highway.
The bypass will reduce the impacts of traffic through Koo Wee Rup significantly.
The Coalition Government injected more than $66 million towards the much needed Koo Wee Rup Bypass 3.4km road link.
“Koo Wee Rup residents and business owners will feel safer as they go about their day without the constant traffic congestion.
“The Coalition Government proudly provided the funding for the Koo Wee Rup bypass construction.
“The bypass will cut down the travel time for people travelling home
or on holidays to the coastal areas.”
