Western Freeway road maintenance works

03 May 2021

The Victorian Government is undertaking important road maintenance works across several sections of the Western Freeway from Derrimut to Caroline Springs. 

What we are doing

To keep the Western Freeway safe and strong for the thousands of drivers who rely on it every day, we’re undertaking important road maintenance work. Works are subject to weather conditions so keep an eye out for signage in your local area and check our website for the latest details.

When to expect us 

Our crews will be undertaking weekend shutdowns across the day and night in May. Please find the current schedule of works outlined below.

8 pm Friday 28 May to 5.30 pm Sunday 30 May

  • A closure of the ramp to the Western Freeway Melton-bound from the M80 Ring Road Greensborough-bound
    • Traffic from the M80 Ring Road travelling towards Greensborough will be directed to the Ballarat Road interchange and will be detoured via Ballarat Road to access the Western Freeway. 
  • A closure of the Western Freeway Melton-bound at the Robinsons Road interchange.
    • Traffic will be required to exit the Western Freeway at the Robinsons Road Melton-bound exit ramp and re-enter the Western Freeway at the Robinsons Road Melton-bound entry ramp.

How will these works impact you?  

During these works, there’ll be: 

  • Long delays on the Western Freeway and the associated detour routes.
  • 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. 

Please plan ahead, allow extra time and look out for traffic management signage.

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