Ormond Road to be upgraded

A vital link
from the eastern suburbs into central Geelong will be upgraded through a major
road reconstruction.

Works will
begin next week on a heavily-used 400-metre-long section of Ormond Road in East
Geelong.

The $1 million
project will deliver a full road reconstruction of the inbound section of the
road, between McKillop and Garden streets.

Crews will
undertake underground drainage works and re-engineer low lying areas to
eliminate water pooling along the busy stretch of road.

The upgrade is
being funded by the Australian Government through the Roads to Recovery
program.

Site
establishment and drainage works will begin on Monday 10 February and are
expected to take two weeks.

Full road
reconstruction will follow, closing the inbound stretch of road to traffic for an
estimated eight weeks.

Residents and
businesses who will be directly impacted by the works have been notified of the
construction dates and times.

Motorists
travelling outbound towards eastern Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula will
not be affected.

The project
complements a road reconstruction that occurred on the outbound side of Ormond
Road in 2018.
