Frankston-Flinders Road maintenance works

We’re improving the road surface of Frankston-Flinders Road in Somerville, Baxter and Hastings.

What are we doing

Significant road rehabilitation works will be undertaken on Frankston-Flinders Road to provide drivers with a smoother, safer and stronger road.

This work will involve restoring the structural layer of the road, including asphalting and traffic management.

We will be working at three sections along Frankston Flinders Road, in Somerville, Baxter and Hastings. 

  • Somerville: Frankston – Flinders Road between Parks Lane and O’Neills Road, and around the Bungower Road roundabout.
  • Baxter: Frankston – Flinders Road between Peninsula Link and Coolart Road
  • Hastings: Frankston – Flinders Road between Cool Store Road and Pound Road, and around the High Street roundabout.

When to expect us

We will be working at 3 locations progressively from Sunday 21 February, with works expected to be completed by early-April 2021. 

Our crews will be starting in the Somerville area on Sunday 21 February for 5 nights, before moving on to Baxter for 5 nights from Sunday 28 February and then on to Hastings from Tuesday 9 March for up to 4 weeks.

We’ll be working during the night between 7pm and 5.30am, Sundays to Thursdays.

In addition to the nightworks, crews will also be working during the day between 9am and 3.30pm at Somerville and Baxter to complete roadside maintenance. Works are expected to take up to 3 days to complete at each location

Please note that these dates are subject to change due to adverse weather conditions.
