Settlement Road maintenance works

We’re delivering important road maintenance works on approximately 450m of Settlement Road in Thomastown, between the Dalton Road roundabout and the intersection of Wood Street and Settlement Road. 


This $864,000 project is being completed as part of the Victorian Government’s $780 million investment in the state’s road maintenance program.

What we’re doing 

These works will involve road rehabilitation to restore the condition of the road surface. We’ll start works from the Dalton Road roundabout and head south-east towards the intersection of Wood Street and Settlement Road. 

A full road closure is required as we will be excavating the existing road in both directions. 

When to expect us 

Crews will be working all weekend continuously from 10pm, Friday 3 March until 5am, Monday 6 March

We will be working during the day and at night to ensure the project is completed as quickly as possible and to minimise disruptions.

Please note that dates are subject to change if we experience adverse weather conditions.  

How will this impact you

  • Settlement Road in Thomastown between the Dalton Road roundabout and the intersection of Wood Street and Settlement Road will be closed from 10pm, Friday 3 March until 5am, Monday 6 March.
  • A number of signed detours will be in place and reduced speed limits will apply surrounding the work zone.
  • Detours include:
    • Traffic wanting to access Settlement Road from Dalton Road will be directed to the Dalton Road/Wood Street roundabout. 
    • Traffic wanting to access Dalton Road from Settlement Road will be directed to the Dalton Street/Wood Street roundabout.
    • Traffic wishing to access the industrial estate north of Settlement Road will turn north at the intersection of Brand Drive and Settlement Road. 
  • Speed limits will be reduced to 40km/h:
    • On all approaches to the Dalton Road/Settlement Road roundabout.
    • On all approaches to the Wood Street/Settlement Road intersection.
  • Access to parking for the Sunday Trash and Treasure Market (vendors and patrons) will be through the Wood Street entrance only. Foot traffic will still be able to enter by the Settlement Road entrance. Refer to the map below for details. 
  • Access to restaurants along the closed section of Settlement Road will be available through the Wood Street car park at 12-18 Wood Street.  
  • Traffic management crews will be on site around the works to help you move through the area and reach your destination while we complete these important works.  
  • There will be medium to high noise levels while we complete these works. 
  • There will be some vibrations and dust around work areas while we remove the existing layer of the road, lay new asphalt, and reinstate the road.
  • Crews use modern equipment to keep noise to a minimum. However, the works will unavoidably emit some noise and light. For the safety of road users and workers on site, reversing beepers are a requirement on all machinery.

Plan ahead and allow for extra travel time of up to five minutes as you move through the area via the marked detours and follow the direction of traffic management crews. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding while we carry out these important maintenance works.
