Hume Freeway maintenance works

The southbound lanes of the Hume Freeway in Beveridge and Kalkallo between Gunns Gully Road and the Donnybrook Road off-ramp are being resurfaced, with upcoming road closures in place.

The works will require a full closure of the Melbourne-bound lanes of the Hume Freeway from the Wallan off-ramp through to Donnybrook Road in Kalkallo.

These maintenance works are part of the Victorian Government’s recovery package in response to the October 2022 floods; with resurfacing being done to maintain the road’s condition and help prevent further degradation.

Crews will work continuously from 9pm Friday April 19 to 5am Monday April 22 and 9pm Friday May 3 to 5am Monday May 6, weather permitting. There will be no works across the Anzac Day weekend.

Contractors will set up for the weekend of works from 6pm each Friday. The southbound lanes will be closed to traffic from 9pm each Friday.

Road users that reach the Wallan off-ramp before 9pm can continue to travel along the southbound lanes of the Hume Freeway as usual.

Road maintenance requires dry, temperate weather conditions when removing and re-laying the road surface. Please note that the dates and times are subject to change due to weather conditions.

What to expect

The southbound lanes of the Hume Freeway will be fully closed from the Wallan off-ramp to Donnybrook Road for each full weekend of works.

Detours will be in place throughout the duration of the works for southbound traffic on the Northern Highway and the Hume Freeway.

VicRoads advises road users to plan ahead and allow for at least 25 minutes of additional travel time as you move through the area via the signed detours.

Detours will be in place during across each full weekend of work.
