Road Renaming Proposal - Koonwarra

As part of Major Road Project Victoria's South Gippsland Highway Upgrade in Koonwarra, a section of the existing South Gippsland Highway will be made redundant due to the new alignment and access will be closed off to through traffic east of Caithness Road. The section of old highway will be retained to allow access for local residents. To allow for the transfer of the road from arterial road to municipal road, a new name must be given to the road.

Proposed Names

Submissions for the naming of the new part of the South Gippsland Highway at Koonwarra have now closed. The following names were compliant under the GNV guidelines and shortlisted:

  • “MILSON”
  • “FOSSIL”

Abutting landowners impacted by the renaming are now being consulted. The results and the shortlisted names will be presented for consideration at the next Council meeting.
