Dynon Road bridge strengthening works - West Melbourne

From 28 March 2022 to 11 April 2022, a single lane will be closed over Dynon Road bridge while works are finished. In the first week, one citybound lane will be closed and in the second week one outbound lane will be closed. During this period, the concrete pylons on the bridge will be repainted.

About the project

The Victorian Government is strengthening the Dynon Road bridge to prepare for increasing heavy vehicle traffic and to ensure freight supply chains are not disrupted. 

To be able to complete this work safely, we’ll be closing one lane in each direction on the bridge in different stages.

The works will need to be completed in three stages to allow continued access across the bridge to vehicles throughout the works. Two out of four traffic lanes will remain open at all times.

  • Stage 1: Traffic will be pushed to the north to create work area on the south side.
  • Stage 2: Traffic will be pushed to the south to create work area on the north side.
  • Stage 3: Traffic split to create median work area.

Low level construction noise may occur at times.

Traffic delays along Dynon Road particularly during morning and afternoon peak hours are expected. There may also be traffic impacts to vehicles exiting CityLink onto Dynon Road to travel westbound. Traffic queues may be expected on the CityLink exit ramp at Dynon Road.

Traffic is encouraged to avoid the area, and alternative route detours will be in place to reduce traffic congestion along Dynon Road. For more information, see the alternative route detour map below.

Project background

This work is being completed as part of the Securing the Safety and Productivity of Victoria’s Road Network program.

Bridge upgrade works are being delivered throughout metropolitan Melbourne to ensure all tram classes and heavy vehicles are being catered for across our ever-changing transport network.

The bridge over Moonee Ponds creek is 80 years old, these essential strengthening and maintenance works will ensure continued serviceability for long into the future.

To ensure its structural integrity, we’re strengthening the bridge deck slab with carbon fibre rods above and below the bridge deck and strengthening the pier concrete columns.

Works will also include pavement resurfacing and waterproofing the bridge deck.

Local businesses

While we complete these important bridge strengthening works, it’s business as usual for your local traders. Remember to shop local during works and support local traders. 

Access to businesses will be maintained at all times during construction.
