Highway reopened

THE South Gippsland Highway between Sale and Longford has been re-opened.

The stretch of road, currently being reconstructed to better cope with a rise in water level, was closed last week after storms caused flooding.

Traffic is restricted to only one lane alternately with traffic signals controlling vehicle movement.

The re-opening ends, for the moment, a 54 kilometre diversion through Rosedale taken by hundreds of commuters driving between Longford and Sale.
