Victorian Freight and Logistics Industry – Western Freeway Maintenance works

National Road Transport Association

The Victorian Government is investing $600,000 to deliver important road maintenance work on the Western Freeway in Ravenhall and Derrimut. We’re delivering significant road rehabilitation works at two locations on the Western Freeway between the Deer Park Bypass and the Western Ring Road.

  1. The first stage of works will be undertaken on approximately 290m of the inbound lanes of the Western Freeway in Ravenhall between the Ballarat Road interchange and Robinsons Road.
  2. The second stage of works will be undertaken on approximately 270m of the outbound lanes of the Western Freeway in Derrimut between the Western Ring Road and Robinsons Road.

We will be completing works on the Western Freeway over two stages:

Stage one

From 8pm Friday 20 May 2022 until 5am Monday 23 May 2022 the inbound lanes on the Western Freeway will be closed between the Ballarat Road interchange and Robinsons Road.

During the closure, there will be a detour in place via Ballarat Road to the Western Ring Road. Motorists can also exit prior to Ballarat Road at Hopkins Road or Leakes Road towards Werribee, or via the Melton Highway through Taylors Lakes.

Stage two

Planning is currently underway for stage two of works. During stage two, the outbound lanes on the Western Freeway will be closed between the Western Ring Road and Robinsons Road.

During the closure, there will be a detour in place at Boundary Road, and at the Western Ring Road where motorists can exit onto Ballarat Road.

Please note that the dates and times are subject to change due to weather conditions.

During both stages of work, detours will be in place and there will be major delays for motorists.

Please plan ahead and allow for extra travel time when travelling through the area.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation while we carry out these important maintenance works.
