Travel time pledge on Hallam Road upgrade


More lanes and changed intersection to be completed late next year

March 6, 2012

Works on Victoria’s Hallam Road, between Pound Road and Ormond Road in Hampton Park, have started, which should deliver easier travel times within two years.

The $38 million upgrade will see extra lanes and improvements to the intersection, Transport Minister Terry Mulder says.

"Hallam Road is an important link for residents and businesses in this growing community and carries approximately 25,000 vehicles each day," he says.

"With extra lanes, intersection improvements and off-road shared paths for pedestrians and cyclists, drivers will enjoy safer and less congested driving conditions with two lanes each way for through traffic and separate turning lanes into some local streets.

"As more people and businesses move into Melbourne’s south-eastern suburbs it is important we continue to invest in better road to service these communities."

The project also includes new traffic signals with turning lanes to be installed at Warana Drive and Somerville Road.

The upgrade is due for completion late next year.

Drivers are urged to be aware of changed traffic conditions and roadwork speed limits which may apply at times during the construction.
