Hall Road Upgrade open nine months ahead of schedule

Back to Newsfeed

Major works on the Hall Road Upgrade are now complete, with drivers, pedestrians and cyclists set to benefit from improved journeys in Melbourne’s outer south-east – 9 months ahead of schedule.

This means 17,000 daily motorists can now use Hall Road’s 5.2 km's of new lanes and new intersections with traffic lights at McCormicks Road, Taylors Road, Western Port Highway, and Evans and Cranbourne-Frankston roads.

The Hall Road Upgrade project was delivered by equal funding of $141.25 million each from the Australian Government and the Victorian Government.

Since construction began in 2022, the project has created more than 850 direct jobs and more than 42,000 tonnes of asphalt has been laid.

The project will better connect local communities in Melbourne’s outer south east to jobs, healthcare and education – while greatly improving traffic flow along Hall Road.

The Hall Road Upgrade will build on improvements already delivered through the Thompsons Road and Hallam Road Upgrades, along with improvements on the Western Port Highway and Lathams Road – significantly improving safety and reducing congestion for the 112,000 combined motorists who use these roads every day.

Final asphalting works will be completed in March, with minor close-out works underway until late 2024.
