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

Hallam Road works

We’re working behind the roadside barriers 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 powerlines permanently underground.

To do this we’ll need to dig up the soil. There will be some day time noise, dust and vibration associated with these works, which we’ll monitor and keep to a minimum.

South Gippsland Highway works

We’re working during the day from 7am-6pm, Thursday 4 to Friday 12 July 2019 on South Gippsland Highway at the corner of Evans Road. We’re digging up the existing centre median to build up the area to prepare for the upgraded intersection.

How these works may affect you

To carry out these works safely, we’ll temporarily:

  • ban right turns at Evans Road and South Gippsland Highway
  • close one lane in each direction on South Gippsland Highway between Elliott Parade and 7-Eleven
  • set the speed limit to 40km/h in the work area.

Detours will be in place to help you get in and out of Evans Road. Traffic controllers will be available to guide you.

Once we’ve finished these works, we’ll continue working behind the barriers on South Gippsland Highway. At times we may need to close one lane on South Gippsland Highway and reduce speed limits. If we do this, we’ll keep you informed through on road signage.

Right turning ban detours

On Tuesday 14 May 2019 we reopened the left turn from Hallam Road onto South Gippsland Highway.

Detours via Lynbrook Boulevard or Pound Road will remain.  Large vehicles will still 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.

To keep up to date with the latest disruptions visit Victoria's Big Build.

Hallam Road business access

While we work, you can still shop locally at Diaco’s Discount Nursery and Garden 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 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 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’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 new trees and shrubs.

What we’ll do and when

We’ll be working during the day from 7am to 6pm, Wednesday 12 June to Wednesday 19 June to remove trees on Hallam Road and South Gippsland Highway, in front of Diaco’s Discount Nursery.

How these works may affect you

To carry out these works safely, we’ll:

  • temporarily close one lane on Hallam Road in the work area
  • have traffic controllers in place to guide you
  • set speed limit to 40km/h.

You may hear some noise as we remove the trees, which we’ll monitor at all times.

During these works, you’ll still be able to access Diaco’s Discount Nursery.
