Napier Street Upgrade – Business Case

Regional Roads Victoria – Napier Street Upgrade – Business Case

RMG was engaged by Regional Roads Victoria – Northern Region to develop a Business Case for the Napier Street Upgrade Project.

Napier Street forms part of the Midland Highway through Bendigo and serves as an important north-south freight and tourist route connection to Echuca, Shepparton and developing areas to the north of Bendigo.

Over the last decade this important route has been experiencing significant traffic pressures due to urban developments in the north of Bendigo – one of the state’s most rapidly growing areas.

The completed project features:

  • An additional traffic lane in each direction;
  • An improved dedicated bicycle lane;
  • A raised central median with dedicated right turn and U-turn openings;
  • Underground power;
  • A boulevard of street trees;
  • New traffic signals at Scott Street;
  • Upgraded pedestrian facilities at the White Hills shops;
  • New pedestrian push button traffic signals near Grace Street; and
  • Upgraded street lighting.

RMG worked together with Regional Roads Victoria and its consultant who were undertaking Concept Road Design and SIDRA modelling of the Concepts. RMG built the Business Case for the Napier Street Upgrade Project, undertaking Risk Based Cost Estimates, developing Risk Based Economic Models and developing the complete Business Case for approval by the Victorian State Government.
