Repairing landslips on Donna Buang Road and Acheron Way

The Victorian Government is repairing landslip sites on Donna Buang Road and Acheron Way, following significant rainfall and severe weather conditions.

What we’re doing

We’re repairing three landslip sites in East Warburton and Warburton; two on Acheron Way and one on Donna Buang Road.

Repair works will involve:

  • Excavating and removing the damaged pavement 
  • Building retaining walls
  • Reinstating and stabilising the road layers 
  • Building up the asphalt layers to provide a smooth and strong road for all road users
  • Drainage improvements 

These vital repair and stabilisation works will help improve the safety and reliability of these roads for local communities and tourists.  

When to expect us

These works are expected to commence on Monday 5 September and be completed by mid-December 2022, weather permitting. 

Crews will be working during the day between 7am and 5pm.

How will these works impact you

  • Acheron Way will be closed between the Rainforest Gallery and Marysville Road from 5 September to mid-December. Drivers are advised to detour via Maroondah Highway, Healesville-Koo Wee Rup Road and Warburton Highway.
  • There will be a lane closure on Donna Buang Road near Acheron Way. One traffic lane will continue to remain open, with portable traffic lights on-site to help drivers continue travelling in both directions. Please expect minor delays.

Further landslip site on Donna Buang Road 

A fourth landslip site, located on Donna Buang Road is currently under review by geotechnical experts. 

Donna Buang Road will remain closed between Mount Toolebewong and the Mt Donna Buang for the safety of all road users and will reopen when repairs are complete and when it’s safe to do so.

Drivers will continue to have access to the Mt Donna Buang Road summit via Warburton. 

We will continue to keep the community as the planning and detailed design works progress.
