Western Roads Upgrade - Road resurfacing on Ballarat Road

As part of our commitment to maintain roads and structures in the west, the Victorian Government is delivering important road maintenance works on approximately 18 kilometres of Ballarat Road, from Footscray to Ravenhall. 

These works will be delivered by Netflow as part of the Western Roads Upgrade and will involve asphalt resurfacing and line marking to restore the condition of the road surface. 

When to expect us 

Crews will be on site from early October to late December, with approximately 50 nights of work occurring along the length of Ballarat Road. 

Works will be conducted Sunday to Thursday, from 8pm to 6am to minimise traffic disruption and to keep our crews safe. 

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

How will this work affect you? 

During working hours, you may notice: 

  • Road closures in 16 separate stages along Ballarat Road, with signed detours in place:
    • No on street parking during the hours of works 
    • High noise levels, vibrations, and dust – we’ll work towards minimising these impacts as much as possible. 
    • Safety lights within the work area. 
    • Reduced speeds during works to ensure the safety of crews and motorists. 

Traffic management will be on site to assist residents and business owners in accessing their properties and helping motorists to travel around the works area safely. 

Please make alternative street parking arrangements for the duration of works and plan ahead to allow extra travel time if Ballarat Road is part of your journey.
