The Western Distributor will be a great benefit for drivers from Ballarat and the surrounding region. It will save Ballarat drivers 20 minutes in the peak and improve the reliability of their travel by creating smoother flowing traffic. The $5.5 billion project will create 5600 jobs, including jobs for regional Victorians, and boost the Victorian economy by $11 billion.
