The Mid Murray Council has welcomed a Federal Government announcement of a Truro bypass, announced in Tuesday night’s budget.
The project is expected to cost $202 million, with works anticipated to begin in late 2022 and an estimated construction completion date in late 2026.
Mid Murray Mayor Dave Burgess said the Council had worked closely with the local Truro community over many years to lobby for the construction of the bypass.
While council support the bypass they say they are committed to working with the Truro community and its business operators to prepare the town for the changes, and new opportunities that the project will present.
