Project update

Works are now nearing completion on the Hallam Road Upgrade between Pound Road and Ormond Road.  The final asphalt surface has been placed, and all lanes are now opened to traffic.

Please note that there are still some minor works that will be undertaken in the new year to complete the project. These final works may require the occasional lane closure, however they will be managed to ensure any disruptions to traffic and access are kept to a minimum.  


Thank you

We would like to thank the Hampton Park community, residents, businesses and motorists for their patience and understanding while these important works have been undertaken.
