We're duplicating 4 kms of Barwon Heads Road between Settlement Road and Reserve Road, and investigating the potential for duplicating a further 6 kms from Reserve Road to Lower Duneed Road.

Revised concept designs

In November 2017 VicRoads completed the initial design for the Barwon Heads Road Duplication project. Since then, we’ve been refining the design based on community and stakeholder feedback to minimise the impact to adjoining landowners.

New concept designs are now available. If you would like to view them, you can book an appointment via our Contact Centre by emailing: contact@roadprojects.vic.gov.au or calling 1800 105 105.

We’ll also be organising a community event to explain the new designs in the near future. Please register to receive the latest project information via the ‘Sign up for updates’ section at the bottom of this web page.

Surveying works

From 8 April 2019, surveyors will be studying geology, topography, trees, drainage, utilities and services along Barwon Heads Road. These investigations will help us develop more detailed designs.

For us to do this, there will be times when we’ll need to access properties along Barwon Heads Road. We may need to place pegs in the ground and conduct ground investigations.

Our surveyors will make every effort to contact you before they enter your property. We’ll work around you as much as possible, so please contact us if you have any specific requirements. The surveyors may require entry onto some properties for a number of hours on multiple occasions.  We’ll always aim to keep our impacts to a minimum.

Planning Scheme Amendment

A Planning Scheme Amendment (PSA) process will commence in 2019, which provides the opportunity for the community to review and formally comment on the concept design. When this process is complete, we’ll seek approval from the Minister for Planning to amend the planning scheme. More information about the PSA will be made available before the process begins.
