Project update

Stage one of works was completed ahead of schedule, with the Western Freeway reopening to motorists from 6pm on 21 May. We thank the community for its patience during these important works.

Planning is currently underway for stage two of works. We’ll be back in touch with more information once dates are confirmed.

What we’re doing

We’re delivering significant road rehabilitation works at two locations on the Western Freeway between the Deer Park Bypass and the Western Ring Road.

Road rehabilitation is the most extensive type of maintenance work that we undertake to repair the road surface, as it involves the replacing of both the pavement and road surface layers.

The first stage of works will be undertaken on approximately 290m of the inbound lanes of the Western Freeway in Ravenhall between the Ballarat Road interchange and Robinsons Road.

The second stage of works will be undertaken on approximately 270m of the outbound lanes of the Western Freeway in Derrimut between the Western Ring Road and Robinsons Road.

What you can expect

We will be completing works on the Western Freeway over two stages:

Stage one

Stage one of the works is now complete and the Western Freeway has reopened to motorists. We would like to thank the community for their patience whilst we completed these important road rehabilitation works.
Stage two

Planning is currently underway for stage two of works. During stage two, the outbound lanes on the Western Freeway will be closed between the Western Ring Road and Robinsons Road.

During the closure, there will be a detour in place at Boundary Road, and also at the Western Ring Road where motorists can exit onto Ballarat Road.

Please note that the dates and times are subject to change due to weather conditions. 

During both stages of work, detours will be in place and there will be major delays for motorists. 

Please plan ahead and allow for extra travel time when travelling through the area.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation while we carry out these important maintenance works.
