We’re upgrading Yan Yean Road between Diamond Creek Road and Kurrak Road to make journeys in Melbourne's north quicker, easier and safer.

Final works

While major works are complete on Stage 1, we're about to start some minor finishing works.

What's happening

From Sunday 22 September to Friday 18 October we’ll lay the final layer of asphalt and complete line marking from Diamond Creek Road to Kurrak Road.

We'll work day and night to give the road a final safe and smooth finish. This work may be loud and disruptive when it is occurring outside your property, however, it'll only be for up to 2 hours before crews move on.


We'll contact you 48 hours prior to working in front of your property to explain our timings and how your access may be impacted.

Lane closures

To do our works safely, we’ll need to close some roads that intersect with Yan Yean Road.  We’ll make sure our on-road signage up to date and let you know if anything changes.

Please note, all our activities are subject to weather conditions.

The table below outlines our planned road closures, dates and detours.
