Resurfacing works will reduce ongoing maintenance by water-proofing the road and improving skid-resistence. This route is an important north-south connection between Ballan and Daylesford for many locals and freight drivers carrying agricultural produce between farm and market, and to the Port of Geelong.

It is also serves as a popular route for tourists visiting Daylesford from Melbourne. 

Works will target: 
- the Ballan-Daylesford Road, just north of the Western Freeway.
The project is part of a $124 million Victorian Government investment to improve the safety and durability of roads that Victorians rely on every day.
