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


As Stage 4 COVID-19 restrictions relax, we’re now resuming minor finishing works on the Hallam Road Upgrade, including line marking, drainage, landscaping and installing new safety guardrails on Evans Road.

From Tuesday 29 September to Friday 23 October, you might see some minor road disruptions including some short-term lane closures on South Gippsland Highway, Hallam and Evans Road.

Evans Road northbound traffic heading towards South Gippsland Highway will be diverted via Lockwood Rise, Elliott Parade and Aylmer Road between 12 -15 October.

We’ll do our best to minimise the impact to both residents and road users, however we ask you to follow detour signs, obey the local speed limit and be mindful of additional vehicles and trucks travelling through the area.

We advise that you allow an extra five minutes when planning your journey during this time.

Why are you doing them now – aren’t we still under restrictions?

These works have been deemed essential works which means they can be completed during relaxed Stage 4 restrictions.

What COVID safe precautions are you taking?

The health and safety of our workers is our priority as we continue to deliver the Hallam Road Upgrade, as is supporting physical distancing measures in line with current health advice. We have strict protocols in place to protect the safety of our construction workforce, including enhanced industrial cleaning arrangements, provision of personal protective equipment and measures to reduce staff contact, including staggered shifts.
