A PRESENTATION has taught year 12 students how the Bridge Inn Road Upgrade is protecting the area’s environment.

The Bridge Inn Road project team visited Doreen’s Plenty Valley Christian College to make the presentation in support of the school’s environmental science curriculum.

Students learned how the upgrade was minimising its environmental impacts and supporting sustainability through activities like air and water quality monitoring and the use of recycled materials.

The students’ learnings from the presentation will also contribute to their assessments.

Major Road Projects Victoria program director Adrian Furner said it was important to work with all members of the community.

“Working with the community to deliver the Bridge Inn Road Upgrade is an important part of our work,” he said.

“We thank Plenty Valley Christian College for the opportunity to share the upgrade’s environmental and sustainability values with the year 12 students as part of their studies.”

The school is part of the wider community in Doreen and Mernda and set to benefit from the Bridge Inn Road Upgrade.

The project is adding extra lanes in both directions between Plenty Road, Mernda, and Yan Yean Road, Doreen.

Other improvements include intersection upgrades, installation of safety barriers and construction of shared walking and cycling paths.

The upgrade is also building a new bridge over Plenty River and repurposing the existing 155-year-old heritage bridge as a dedicated walking and cycling path.

More information about the upgrade is available at roadprojects.vic.gov.au/bridgeinn.
