Camperdown, Colac, Dennington, Koroit, Panmure, Portland, Warrnambool

Our crews improved the surface of key roads across South West Victoria, from Colac to west of Portland, over the 2022-23 maintenance season.

These maintenance works help make our roads smoother, stronger and safer, while supporting jobs on the ground and boosting local economies. The improvements are part of the Victorian Government’s investment of $780 million into state-wide road maintenance for 2022-23.

Thank you for your patience during these important works.

Frequently asked questions

How will the maintenance roadworks impact travel and access?

During works, reduced speeds and temporary lane closures may be in place. Please be aware of temporary signs and changed traffic conditions to ensure the safety of road users and our crews.

We’ll maintain local access to properties and businesses within the works area, with traffic controllers on site to assist. If we need to restrict access, we’ll knock at your door or provide further information through a local letterbox drop.

Short delays are expected, so look out for signs alerting you to temporary changed traffic conditions and allow extra travel time for your journey.

Can I park on the road if you’re doing works near my property?

If we’re working near your property, we request you park vehicles off the road for the duration of the works.

What time of the day are you working?

We’re working hard to ensure these maintenance works avoid disruption during peak times.

Night works are typically scheduled Sunday to Thursday nights between 7pm and 5am, with lanes reopening during the day with temporary reduced speed limits in place.

Crews aim to complete the noisiest work in the first half of the evening to minimise noise. You may observe bright lights, dust and reversing beepers.

Day works are typically scheduled between 7am and 5:30pm on weekdays, with lanes reopening at night with temporary reduced speed limits in place.

Why are you doing this maintenance now?

Most maintenance work is scheduled between spring and autumn, when the weather is typically warmer and drier, providing better conditions for longer lasting road works.

These vital works ensure that Victorians stay connected to education, employment, family and friends, as well as connecting our manufacturers and producers with domestic and international trade markets.
