We’re upgrading Barwon Heads Road to make your journey safer and more predictable.

Upcoming disruptions

We’ll work at night between Sunday 24 October and Wednesday 10 November from 7pm to 6am to install barriers and do temporary pavement and line marking works.

We’ll complete these works along sections of Barwon Heads Road between Settlement Road and Marshalltown Road:

  • 24 to 29 October: Northbound lane closed between Marshalltown Road and Tamala Avenue.
  • 26 to 29 October: All lanes closed between Settlement Road and Breakwater Road.
  • 3 to 10 November: All lanes closed between Marshalltown Road and Barwarre Road.

Road closures and detours will be in place overnight and Barwon Heads Road will re-open each morning. View detour maps below.

Temporary pedestrian detour

From early October to mid November 2021 there’ll be temporary changes to pedestrian movements around Settlement Road and Barwon Heads Road intersection and Breakwater Road and Barwon Heads intersection, as we complete water relocation works.

We’ll have detour and wayfinding signage in place to safely guide pedestrians around the area.
