Canterbury Road and Blackburn Road - Blackburn South maintenance work

28 May 2021

The Victorian Government will be undertaking important road maintenance works along Canterbury Road and Blackburn Road in Blackburn South. 

What we’re doing

We’ll be resurfacing sections of Canterbury Road and Blackburn Road in Blackburn South. This $800,000 investment will help ensure these busy roads remain strong and safe for all drivers.

When to expect us 

To minimise disruptions to traffic, crews will be working at night between 8pm and 5am.

Works are expected to take place from Tuesday 1 June to Thursday 17 June; excluding Friday and Saturday nights. 

These dates are subject to change depending on weather conditions. 

Working dates and traffic impacts

Road closures and partial lane closures will be in place whilst crews work. Please observe the detours whilst travelling through the area. 

To keep our crews safe, we will have temporary speed reductions in place near the work zone. Please observe these speeds as you travel through the area. Some noise, vibration and dust are also expected as we complete these works.
