Western Freeway resurfacing works

26 March 2021

The Victorian government is undertaking important resurfacing works on the Western Freeway between Fitzgerald Road and Robinsons Road.  

What we’re doing

To keep the Western Freeway safe and strong for the thousands of drivers who rely on it every day, we’re undertaking important resurfacing maintenance work. 

When to expect us 

Our crews will be working on the nights of Tuesday 30 March, Wednesday 31 March and Tuesday 6 April. Access to the Western Freeway outbound will be restricted by two road closures in place from 9pm until 4am. 

9pm to 4am Tuesday 30 March, Wednesday 31 March & Tuesday 6 April:

  • Closure 1: Western Freeway outbound closed between Fitzgerald Road and Robinsons Road
  • Closure 2: M80 Ring Road to Western Freeway outbound off-ramp closed
  • Drivers are asked to follow the detours that will be in place


During works detours will be in place along Fitzgerald Road, Boundary Road and Robinsons Road.  

How will these works impact you? 

During these maintenance works, there’ll be: 

  • A closure of the Western Freeway outbound between Fitzgerald Road & Robinsons Rd
  • A closure of the M80 off-ramp to Western Freeway outbound 
  • Signed detours will be in place 
  • To keep everyone safe, we will have safe speeds in place near the work zone
  • Some noise, vibration, and dust from the works

Works are subject to weather conditions. 

Thank you for your patience while we complete these important works.
