We’re building the 6km Drysdale Bypass between Jetty Road and Whitcombes Road to improve safety and ease congestion on the Bellarine Peninsula.

Primary works zone – Grubb Road, Drysdale

Works have started to establish the bypass construction site near the corner of Grubb Road and Andersons Road. The road will soon be fenced and earthworks will start in all areas along the 6km site.

A site office in Clarendon Road and a site compound on Princess Street will also be established soon. Works will take place on:

  • Monday to Friday, 7am to 6pm
  • Saturdays, 7am to 1pm

On occasion, we may need to undertake works outside of these hours. If so, we’ll notify all affected residents in advance.

To carry out these works safely, we will:

  • plan our traffic management to minimise the impact at peak traffic times
  • install temporary traffic barriers and signage in the works zone
  • maintain access for residents during construction
  • monitor noise and dust levels.

Truck movements

We’re building the bypass with materials from the road alignment site, moving dirt from higher areas at Drakes Road and Murradoc Road to the lower ones at Peninsula Drive and Andersons Road.

You may notice an increase in truck movements through Drakes Road, High Street, Grubb Road, Andersons Road, Eversley Street and Princess Street the site as we move material around the site. The haulage route through Eversley Street and Princess Street will be in operation for approximately one month.

These routes have been selected to minimise disruptions to school traffic and neighbouring homes. Please be assured that community safety is our number one priority.

We're working with our truck drivers to remind them to haul responsibly, but if you have any concerns or notice behaviour that is not in line with our high standard, please contact us.
