Todd Road maintenance works

04 May 2023

The Victorian Government is investing $360,000 to deliver important road maintenance work on Todd Road in Port Melbourne. 

What we’re doing

We’re delivering significant road rehabilitation works on Todd Road between Cook Street and Wharf Road.

Road rehabilitation is the most extensive type of maintenance work that we undertake to repair the road surface, as it involves the replacing of both the pavement and road surface layers.

This work is being completed as part of the Victorian Government’s $780 million investment in the state’s road maintenance program.

What you can expect

From 8pm on Friday 12 May until 8pm Sunday 14 May, Todd Road will be closed in both directions from the Cook Street intersection to the Wharf Road roundabout.

Crews will be working all weekend continuously, including night works, to get the job done faster and to minimise disruption.

Detours will be in place throughout the duration of works. Please plan ahead and allow up to an extra 15 minutes of travel time as you move through the area via the signed detours.

There will be no road access to the West Gate Park carpark and businesses within the works zone whilst we’re on site, with access to be maintained via the footpaths.

There will be medium to high noise levels while we complete these works.

There will be some vibrations and dust around work areas while we remove the existing layer of the road, lay new asphalt, and reinstate the road.

Road rehabilitation requires dry, temperate weather conditions when removing and relaying the road surface. Works are subject to weather conditions, and the dates may change to accommodate adverse weather.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation while we carry out these important maintenance works.

Public transport impacts

Route 606 buses will operate as normal, with traffic management on site to escort buses through the works zone.

Routes 235 and 237 along Lorimer Street may experience some delays due to higher traffic volumes.

For information about public transport changes during these works, visit the PTV website.
