We've upgraded 8 main roads in Melbourne's west and we're continuing to improve and maintain more than 260km of road from Footscray to Werribee.

Road resurfacing and repair

In 2018 we started resurfacing and repairing sections of key roads in Wyndham, Hobsons Bay, Brimbank and Maribyrnong municipalities.

We’ll continue these works during 2021, with maintenance then continuing over the next 20 years on 260kms of roads from Footscray to Werribee.

The works include:

  • milling - taking up the old road surface
  • strengthening - sometimes extra work is done beneath the road surface to make sure it's strong enough
  • paving - a final layer of asphalt
  • line marking - painting the correct lines on the road surface
  • repairing the kerbs on the side of roads if necessary.
