Resurfacing works will reduce ongoing maintenance by water-proofing the road and improving skid-resistence. This route is an important north-south connection between Daylesford and Ballarat for many locals and freight drivers carrying agricultural produce between farm and market. It is also an alternative route between Ballarat and Daylesford.

It serves as a popular route for tourists visiting Central Victoria.

Works will target: 
- Daylesford-Ballarat Road, at Pootilla. 
 
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.
