Princes Highway Duplication - Traralgon East to Kilmany
VicRoads proposes to duplicate the Princes Highway between Traralgon East (Stammers Road) and Kilmany (Templetons Road) as part of a larger project to duplicate this highway between Traralgon and Sale.
The proposal does not include the section of the highway which has already been duplicated through the township of Rosedale.
Minister for Planning's Assessment
In September 2012, the Minister for Planning released his Assessment under the Environment Effects Act 1978, which concluded the Environment Effects Statement (EES) process. The Assessment was provided to statutory decision-makers to inform approval decisions on this project.
Inquiry and Advisory Committee process
A combined Inquiry and Advisory Committee was appointed to consider the submissions made in response to the proposal.
Public hearings for the project concluded on 18 April 2012.
The Inquiry/Advisory Committee submitted its report on 15 June 2012.
Exhibition of EES
The EES for the Princes Highway Duplication from Traralgon East to Kilmany, including draft Amendments to the Latrobe and Wellington Planning Schemes, was on public exhibition from 18 January to 9 March 2012.
The EES documents can be viewed and downloaded from the VicRoads website.
On 22 October 2010, the Minister for Planning requested VicRoads to prepare an EES under the Environment Effects Act 1978 to assess the likely environmental effects of the proposal.
Draft Scoping Requirements for this EES were placed on public exhibition from 24 January to 14 February 2011. The Minister for Planning issued final Scoping Requirements for the EES on 9 March 2011.
