We’re upgrading Hallam Road between Ormond Road and the South Gippsland Highway to make your journey safer and more reliable.


From late February until the end of May we’ll be working at the Hallam Road and South Gippsland Highway intersection. During this time, there will be some changes to the way you access South Gippsland Highway from Hallam Road while we dig up the road for utility maintenance.

Temporary turning bans at Hallam Road

From Wednesday 27 February to end 30 May 2019, we’re temporarily banning some turns at the Hallam Road and South Gippsland Highway intersection.

During this time:

  • you won’t be able to enter onto South Gippsland Highway from Hallam Road
  • you won’t be able to turn right from South Gippsland Highway to Hallam Road
  • the left turn from South Gippsland Highway onto Hallam Road will remain open.

Detours will be in place for you to access businesses on Hallam Road and to walk and cycle through the area.

Turning ban detours

Detours around the site will be clearly signed and may add extra time to your journey.

To access Hallam Road and South Gippsland Highway:

  • Cars and trucks will be detoured via Lynbrook Boulevard or Pound Road
  • Large and oversize vehicles will need to detour via Pound Road

Hallam Road business access

While we work, you can still drive to Diaco’s Discount Nursery and Rock Supplies, Outlook Environmental and Lyndpark Garden Supplies on Hallam Road.

Access for trucks to SUEZ Hampton Park Resource Recovery Precinct and Holcim will remain.

Tree removal and trimming

To facilitate the new lane in each direction on Hallam Road and the upgrade of the Hallam Road and South Gippsland Highway intersection, we need to remove and trim some trees.

We’ve worked with arborists and ecologists to minimise impacts where possible.

From Monday 4 March to early April we’ll be removing and trimming trees along Hallam Road and at the Hallam Road and South Gippsland Highway.

Starting on the east side of Hallam Road we’ll work from Ormand Road towards South Gippsland Highway, along South Gippsland Highway and then back up Hallam Road on the west side. All work will be completed during the day.

During this time:

  • you may hear some daytime noise associated with equipment required to trim or remove trees
  • there’ll be a small workforce located in and around the areas of work
  • property access will be maintained at all times.

Two-way traffic will be maintained along Hallam Road during the work. However, when we’re working close to the road we may need to temporary close one lane to keep our workers and drivers on Hallam Road safe.

When this is needed traffic management, will be in place, with staff to assist drivers and pedestrians around the work. For your safety, please observe any signage and instructions from traffic management teams.
