Point Cook Road – Update

 

I know the road works on Point Cook Rd are causing some inconvenience, and I sincerely regret that. Please be patient with the works because they are being done to improve access into and out of the Point Cook/Seabrook area. PLEASE NOTE THE WORKS ARE A VICROADS PROJECT and are under their control even though the council has contributed significant funds to the project. We did this because we know this road desperately needed to be upgraded.

The project includes the upgrading of Point Cook Rd between Skeleton Creek and Homestead Run and involves the installation of kerb & channel, drainage, street lighting (already done) and widening the through sections of the road. The road will be widened to accommodate two through traffic lanes, one central right turning traffic lane, occasional left turning traffic lanes and two on road bicycle lanes.

The works are being carried out by Nick Neda Contracting and is expected to continue until June/July. A 40 km/h speed limit applies to the area 24 hours a day during the works, also work is being scheduled from 7.00 am to 5.00 pm. Importantly, no lane closures are permitted in the morning or afternoon peaks. There will be some weekend and night works (primarily asphalting). Parking restrictions will occur as required.

The council has allowed VicRoads to set up a site compound for the project on council land just north of Carinza Avenue.

Please also note VicRoads has commenced work on the Palmers Road Upgrade and access to the Freeway (eastbound) will be restricted to one lane to enable the bridge to be extended across the rail line.

Regards,

Tony
