Maintenance works on Kings Way, South Melbourne

11 June 2019

We’re resurfacing sections of Kings way between the West Gate Freeway, Southbank and the Princes Highway, Melbourne.

What we are doing

This work involves asphalting sections of the road, including traffic management at the following locations:

  • Sturt Street to West Gate Freeway (both sides of the road)
  • Park Street to the Princes Highway (city bound side of the road)

This maintenance work is necessary to improve the condition of the road’s surface to ensure the future safety and reliability of the road.

When to expect us

Our crews will be working at night from 17 June - 1 July 2019 between 9pm - 5.30am. 

How will these works impact you?

During these maintenance works, there’ll be:

  • staged road closures along Kings Way
  • detours supported by on-site traffic management
  • traffic diverted on to the other side of the road to keep traffic moving in both directions  
  • a speed reduction to ensure the safety of our work crews and motorists
  • medium-high level of noise, vibration and dust from the works. 

More information on detours
