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 are constructing the bypass by using materials from the road alignment site only. This means we will have to cart some dirt from Drakes Road through to the new Peninsula Drive site.

You may notice an increase in truck movements through Drakes Road, High Street, Grubb Road and Andersons Road.

This route has been selected to minimise disruptions to school traffic and neighbouring homes.

We will be conducting these works outside of peak periods to minimise impacts to traffic.
