We’re upgrading Hallam Road between Ormond Road and the South Gippsland Highway to make your journey safer and more reliable.
Hallam Road works
Until the end of the year, we’ll need to work overnight between 6pm and 6am from Sunday nights to Friday nights as required. We’re doing this to lay new asphalt on Hallam Road southbound lanes and repair Hallam Road northbound lanes between Ormond Road and South Gippsland Highway.
We’ll do our best to keep noise and dust to a minimum.
To complete these essential works, we will need to close Hallam Road from 6pm to 7am on Thursday 7 November and Sunday 10 November. Detours will be via Lyndbrook Boulevard. Large vehicles will need to detour via Pound Road.
These works are in addition to our normal working hours from 7am to 6pm, Monday to Saturday.
Building the new southbound lanes
We’ll also be working behind the roadside barriers on the east side of Hallam Road to:
- move utility services, such as water and electricity, away from where the new lanes on Hallam Road will be built and making way for the new traffic lights at South Gippsland Highway
- move the overhead power lines permanently underground.
There will be changes to how you travel on Hallam Road (see below).
South Gippsland Highway works
We’re working behind the barriers on South Gippsland Highway to install traffic lights and build dedicated turning lanes into Hallam Road and Evans Road.
Until the end of the year, we’ll need to work overnight between 6pm and 6am from Sunday nights to Friday nights as required to lay new asphalt on South Gippsland Highway centre median between Elliott Parada and Golf Club Road.
There will be some changes to how you travel on South Gippsland Highway (see below).
Evans Road works
We’ll be working on South Gippsland Highway at the corner of Evans Road. We’ll dig up the existing centre median and build up the area to prepare the road for the upgraded intersection.
Until the end of the year, we’ll need to work overnight between 6pm and 6am from Sunday nights to Friday nights as required to prepare for the new turning lanes from Evans Road to South Gippsland Highway.
Night road closures
To complete these essential works, we’ve planned to close Evans Road from 6pm to 7am from Wednesday 13 November to Thursday 14 November and Monday 18 November to Tuesday 19 November. Detours will be via Elliott Parade and Aylmer Road.
Changes to the way you travel
As we complete these essential upgrades, we’ll sometimes need to reduce Hallam Road to one lane between South Gippsland Highway and Livingstone Rise. Traffic controllers will be onsite to guide you through the work area.
Right turn bans will be in place at the Hallam Road and South Gippsland Highway intersection for the duration of the project.
Detours via Lynbrook Boulevard will be in place. Large vehicles need to detour via Pound Road for drivers who want to turn right from:
- Hallam Road onto South Gippsland Highway
- South Gippsland Highway onto Hallam Road.
South Gippsland Highway
South Gippsland Highway will be reduced to one lane in each direction between Elliott Parade and Golf Club Road as required until the end of the year, to complete these important upgrades. Speed limits will be reduced to 40km/h through the work area..
At certain times while we work, temporary right turn bans will be in place at Evans Road and South Gippsland Highway. We will do this as required to complete works on the new right turn lanes into South Gippsland Highway.

Tree removal and trimming
To make way for the new lanes we’ll be building on Hallam Road and the upgraded intersection at Hallam Road and South Gippsland Highway, we will need to remove and trim some trees.
Every effort has been made to minimise the number of trees removed, and only trees affected by our works will be removed. We’ve also been granted the relevant planning permits for the removal.
We’ve removed and trimmed some trees already and will still need to remove some more. When we do this, we’ll have a fauna handler on site to inspect each tree and relocate any wildlife before any trees are removed.
We’re also working with community groups to identify opportunities to recycle and reuse the timber from these trees.
Once our works are complete, we’ll landscape the area with over 10,000 new trees and shrubs.
