Flemington Road maintenance, North Melbourne

20 January 2023

The Victorian Government is delivering important road maintenance work on approximately 1.2km of Flemington Road, between Wreckyn Street and Dryburgh Street in North Melbourne.

What we’re doing

To keep Flemington Road safe for the community and the thousands of road users who rely on it every day, we are undertaking vital road resurfacing works on the northwest bound lanes of Flemington Road, between Wreckyn Street and Dryburgh Street.

When to expect us

Crews will be on site for 3 nights between Monday 23 January and Monday 30 January.

We will be working at night to minimise traffic disruption with detours and traffic management in place to keep our crews safe.

Please note that the dates and times are subject to change due to weather conditions.

What to expect

Crews will be working gradually to resurface all northwest bound lanes between Wreckyn Street and Dryburgh Street.

Works on the outer service lanes will take place over one night:

  • From 8pm on Monday 23 January until 5am on Tuesday 24 January. The outer service lanes on Flemington Road will be closed to all through traffic, with motorists required to use the inner lanes.
  • There will be no access in or out of Harker Street during works, with a signed detour in place.

Works on the inner lanes will be undertaken over two nights:

  • From 8pm on Tuesday 24 January until 5am on Wednesday 25 January, and
  • From 8pm on Sunday 29 January until 5am on Monday 30 January.

During works on the inner lanes, motorists will be required to use the outer service lanes.

Motorists travelling north west along Flemington Road wishing to access the Royal Melbourne Hospital will need to follow the signed detour via Racecourse Road, Boundary road, Macaulay Road, Stubbs Road and Racecourse Road.

Ambulances and emergency vehicles will be escorted through the site during works.

We will maintain access homes and businesses at all times, with traffic controllers on site to help you move through the area safely

During works, there may be delays of up to 5 minutes. Please plan ahead and allow for extra time if Flemington Road is part of your journey.

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