Traffic Alert - Great Ocean Road
November 21, 2016
Urgent asphalt resurfacing nightworks scheduled at Separation Creek
VicRoads advises drivers of necessary nightworks on the Great Ocean Road, east of Separation Creek, on Monday 28 November.
All townships along the Great Ocean Road will remain open for business, accessible via inland routes.
Traffic controllers will be stationed at Lorne and Skenes Creek during the works to explain detour options, most likely via Deans Marsh and Forrest.
Limited local access from Lorne to Cumberland River and Skenes Creek to Separation Creek will also be available.
Maintenance crews will close the road at the landslide site 500m east of Separation Creek from 9pm on Monday night to 5am Tuesday morning to repair pot holes on the east-bound lane, adjacent to the current workzone.
The surface is deteriorating due to increased traffic volumes and construction plant impacts.
VicRoads has scheduled the critical nightworks to ensure the road is repaired before Friday 2 December, when the Great Victorian Bike Ride will travel through the area.
We encourage drivers to plan ahead, observe roadside signage and detours and allow extra travel time.
Lane closures and speed restrictions
Safety is our number one priority on all our worksites. We encourage road users to slow down and drive to the conditions through work zones. Traffic management will continue while clearing and construction works are in progress.
We encourage drivers to stay informed by visiting the VicTraffic website or calling 13 11 70.
We now have a designated webpage for Great Ocean Road landslide information and traffic conditions.
