For Stage 1, we added traffic lights at the O’Herns Road and High Street intersection. For Stage 2, we’re building a new interchange at the Hume Freeway and adding extra lanes on the freeway and O’Herns Road.

Current traffic impacts

Over the coming months we’ll continue closing lanes on O’Herns Road during the day while we relocate underground services. We’ll also close lanes on the Hume Freeway between 8am and 3pm, so we can safely undertake works on the bridge.

At this time, all Victorians are being encouraged to stay home and save lives. If you do need to leave the house for any of the four reasons allowed, please observe signage for information about lane closures, detours and speed reductions.

Cotters Road

We previously advised that we’d reopen Cotters Road at O’Herns Road in September 2020. Following the Victorian Government's announcement regarding Stage 4 restrictions, we reduced our workforce numbers in August and September to support directions from the Chief Health Officer. This means the reopening of Cotters Road will be postponed to a later date. We’re working to ensure we minimise any potential delays and we’ll update you on the revised date soon.

Managing traffic impacts

We're committed to keeping you moving during construction.

The majority of our works will be performed during the day from Monday to Friday, 7am to 6pm and on Saturdays, 7am to 3pm.

Some works may need to be undertaken at night to minimise impacts on traffic and utility services. If this needs to happen, we’ll let you know in advance.

Traffic management

Traffic management will be in place to guide roads users safely around our work zones. Our measures will include:

  • installing signage and traffic devices to guide all road users through changed traffic conditions
  • temporary lane and road closures
  • temporary diversion of the Galada Tamboore shared walking and cycling path
  • temporary diversion of road traffic
  • reducing speed limits
  • installing safety barriers to safely separate pedestrians, cyclists and drivers from our construction activities.
