Maroondah Highway, Healesville to Narbethong (Black Spur) works

11 June 2021

Following severe weather conditions, the Black Spur remains closed while an extensive clean-up is underway. 

There is debris in numerous locations along the road and approximately 50 large trees have fallen.

Clean up works are currently taking place between Dom Dom Saddle and the Black Spur Roadhouse to ensure access to residents along this stretch of Maroondah Highway. We expect to complete this section by the end of today.

Crews will continue working over the next week to safely remove all traffic hazards.

We are working hard to open the road as quickly as possible and hope to reopen the road by late next week.

Current COVID-19 restrictions

Melbourne's COVID-19 restrictions are still in place. Travel into regional Victoria is not permitted, except for a number of limited reasons – work, education, care, and caregiving, and to get vaccinated (if this is your nearest vaccination location).

If you must travel between regional Victoria and Metropolitan Melbourne for those reasons, please detour via the Melba Highway to Yea, the Goulburn Valley Highway to Alexandra, before heading south on the Maroondah Highway to Narbethong or vice versa.

If you are from regional Victoria, you will still be able to access local businesses in Narbethong, Marysville and Buxton from Alexandra - via Maroondah Highway.

Please note that Acheron Way and Donna Buang Road are also closed until further notice.
