Overview

Hallam Road is an important link between the South Gippsland Highway and the Monash Freeway.

The Victorian Government is investing $38.4 million to upgrade the 1.2 kilometre section between Ormond Road and South Gippsland Highway.

More than 10,000 vehicles travel on this section of road each day. A further 40,000 vehicles rely on the Hallam Road, South Gippsland Highway and Evans Road intersection every day, while travelling at high speeds.

Improving safety is this key priority for this project as 22 crashes on this section of road have been recorded since 2012.

The upgrade will improve safety and connectivity in this area by:

  • adding an extra lane in each direction for better traffic flow
  • installing traffic lights at the South Gippsland Highway intersection
  • constructing a new walking and cycling path on both sides of the road to provide better access to bus services
  • enabling the City of Casey to reopen Evans Road, reconnecting the communities of Lyndhurst and Lynbrook.

A tender process has started for this project and a successful contractor will be selected later in the year. Construction is expected to start by the end of 2018.
