We're upgrading Fitzsimons Lane to make it easier and safer to get you where you need to be.

Night works at Main Road roundabout

We’re starting work to upgrade the roundabout at the intersection of Main Road and Fitzsimons Lane to traffic lights.

Our nightworks have been pushed back to 16 May due to wet weather.

From 16 May until late June we’ll work at night between 8pm and 6am, Sunday night to Friday morning.

Works will include:

  • removing centre medians, the roundabout and kerbs
  • adding temporary road barriers and fencing
  • installing temporary traffic lights and street lighting
  • asphalting and line marking.

Once this work is complete, our team will still be able to work safely behind barriers. Please note, the intersection will still function as a roundabout.

What to expect

During this time, you can expect:

  • changes in pedestrian and cyclist from Jayson Avenue to Hohnes Road
  • construction impacts such as noise, dust and vibration
  • reduced speeds to 40km/h and lane closures along Main Road and Fitzsimons Lane.

We’ll aim to keep these impacts to a minimum. For your safety, please observe signs and instructions from traffic controllers.

Closure of Jayson Avenue intersection

To complete our work safely, we need to close Jayson Avenue at Fitzsimons Lane from Sunday 6 June until late August.

From Sunday 6 June we’ll also temporarily change the way you walk and cycle in and out of Jayson Avenue for approximately 12 months.

The map below shows the detours for vehicles via Homestead Road and Hohnes Road and detours via Hohnes Road, the Diamond Creek Trail and Main Yarra Trails for cyclists and pedestrians.

The temporary closures are in place so we can complete the following work:

  • upgrade the existing shared use path
  • improve drainage
  • widen the road
  • build a new retaining wall and kerbs
  • lay new road surface and add line markings.

During this time there will be no left turn in or out of Jayson Avenue at Fitzsimons Lane.

What to expect

  • Jayson Avenue closed at Fitzsimons Lane with detours in place
  • changes in pedestrian and cyclist access from Jayson Avenue to Hohnes Road
  • construction impacts such as noise, dust and vibration
  • reduced speeds and lane closures along Main Road and Fitzsimons Lane
  • weekly rubbish bin collection changes.
