We're upgrading the M80 Ring Road from Laverton North to Greensborough.

Working hours

Most works will be undertaken during the day between 7am to 6pm, Monday to Friday and 7am to 6pm on Saturdays.

We'll also be doing some works at night to minimise impacts on traffic and ensure the safety of our workers. We’ll let you know ahead of time if our night works may affect you.


Noise from construction will vary depending on the type of activity being undertaken. If you’re close to our works, you may notice increased noise levels at times.

Some of the main sources of noise during construction include machinery such as excavators and graders, piling rigs, generators, power tools, site workers, vehicles and trucks delivering and transferring materials to and from our construction sites.

We’ll make all reasonable efforts to minimise any impacts on local residents and businesses during these works by:

  • scheduling noisy activities in day-time construction hours as much as possible
  • providing local residents and businesses with advance notice about any out-of-hours works
  • fitting machinery with engine noise reduction equipment
  • monitoring noise in areas adjacent to residential and commercial properties.

Traffic, cyclists and pedestrians

While investigations are underway, there’ll be some temporary changes to traffic conditions including overnight lane closures, speed limit reductions and traffic management on the Blaxland Avenue overpass.

Detours, signage and traffic controllers will be in place to manage traffic flow and ensure motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are able to safely navigate around our work areas.

Be on the lookout for traffic signs which we’ll also use to inform you of any changes to your journey.
