We’ll be starting road improvements from Monday 8 January and are expected to be finished by the end of February 2018.

We will close this section of Fyans Street each night from 6.30pm to 6.30am to minimise disruption at busy times.

Fyans Street will be open during the day and to keep everyone safe the speed limit will be reduced to 40km/h during the day. 

Signs and traffic controllers will be on site to help direct drivers and there may be minor delays, so please plan your journey in advance.

Project background

Fyans Street was originally built over an old tip and we need to smooth it out every 20 years or so.

About the project

The Victorian Government and City of Greater Geelong are investing $800,000 to upgrade and smooth out Fyans Street, between Swanston Street and the railway crossing at Wood Street. 

We’ll be fixing 700 metres of damaged road, improving the service road and installing better drainage.

Works include:

  • Replacing the existing road with recycled foam bitumen and cement stabiliser
  • Re-laying a new surface
  • Raising the road slightly to allow run off and prevent water pooling
  • Replacing asphalt on the intersection at Crown Street
  • Improving drainage, line-marking, bicycles lanes, kerb and channel


A diverse range of businesses operate in South Geelong including car sales, major transport, and sporting facilities.

These major improvements will make access to the industrial area safer and smoother for everyone.

Community involvement

Feedback from local business owners is supportive as they all see the need to improve access and safety for the 17,000 cars, trucks and bicycles that use it every day.
