Hallam Road Upgrade, Ormond Road to South Gippsland Highway

The Victorian Government has provided funding for the $38.4 million Hallam Road Upgrade to improve traffic flow, connectivity and safety in Melbourne’s growing south-east region.

The Hallam Road Upgrade between Ormond Road and South Gippsland Highway will greatly improve safety, relieve traffic congestion and provide the community with better connectivity and improved access to public transport.

Project background

Supporting the future growth plan of Cranbourne North and Cranbourne West, the Hallam Road Upgrade will improve connectivity to local and arterial roads providing better access to places where people, live, work and play.

The upgrade will also address the safety concerns on this important north-south link between the Monash Freeway and South Gippsland Highway, where 22 crashes have been recorded since 2012, on Hallam Road from Ormond Road to South Gippsland Highway.

About the project

In November 2014, stage one of Hallam Road duplication was completed between Pound Road and Ormond Road, Hampton Park.

In April 2016, $38.4 million was provided by the State Government to continue the Hallam Road Upgrade for a further 1.2 kilometres between Ormond Road and South Gippsland Highway. 

This will include:

  • an additional lane in each direction
  • the installation of traffic lights at South Gippsland Highway intersection, and 
  • the construction of a new walking and cycling path.

Completion of this project will improve the safety of the Hallam Road/ South Gippsland Highway/Evans Road intersection, and also enable the City of Casey to re-open Evans Road further improving connectivity for the local community.

Planning and Progress

Since October 2016, we have been in preconstruction phase, working on the many activities required for effective and efficient delivery of the upgrade. This has included environmental investigations to allow for the preparation and submission of relevant vegetation removal permit applications.

We are also planning for the relocation of major utility services, undertaken survey and design development work plus pavement and geotechnical investigations.

We have been meeting with directly affected landowners to discuss the proposed design and will continue to engage with them throughout the project.


As an important and popular north-south link between South Gippsland Highway and Monash Freeway the Hallam 

Road Upgrade will

  • Improve road safety for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians
  • Help combat delays and improve traffic flow
  • Create inclusive communities by improving access to existing public transport and supporting future bus services
  • Promote active transport with an off-road walking and cycling path
  • Enable the City of Casey to re-open Evans Road reconnecting the communities of Lyndhurst and Lynbrook

Community involvement

In October 2017 we hosted community information stands at the Lynbrook Community Centre, Hampton Park Shopping Centre and the Lynbrook Lantern Festival, where members of the community could view the proposed design and speak with the project team to answer their questions and provide further information. 

We will continue to speak with key stakeholder groups, local Members of Parliament, councils and local community organisations and residents during the upgrade.

Wherever possible, we’ll notify potentially affected residents through direct updates via letterbox drops, door knocks and community updates.

We are committed to looking after the environment and are continuing our investigations to determine what impacts the project may have and what measures we can put in place to avoid or minimise these impacts.

What happens next?

We are finalising our design based on:

  • Results from detailed investigations to assess any potential impacts to the environment and disruptions to traffic throughout construction 
  • Feedback we have received from ongoing discussions with directly impacted land owners, our talks with local community groups and consultation at our pop information sessions 

We will continue to engage with local residents, business owners and community groups with an interest in the project.
