We're upgrading 8 main roads in Melbourne's west as well as improving and maintaining more than 260km of road from Footscray to Werribee.

Road resurfacing and repair

In 2018 we started resurfacing and repairing sections of 37 key roads in Wyndham, Hobsons Bay, Brimbank and Maribyrnong municipalities. In June 2020 we completed the resurfacing program, creating smoother roads and safer journeys for the road users who rely on these roads every day.

The works included:

  • Milling - taking up the old road surface
  • Strengthening - sometimes extra work was done beneath the road surface to make sure it was strong enough
  • Paving - the final layer of asphalt
  • Line marking - painting the correct lines on the road surface
  • Sometimes we also repaired the kerbs on the side of roads.
