Great Eastern Highway Bypass Interchanges Project

Overnight road works and lane closures on Great Eastern Highway Bypass, 29 January to mid March 2023


A number of utility relocation works are required at the intersection of the Great Eastern Highway Bypass (the Bypass) and Abernethy Road in preparation for the construction of a new grade-separated interchange. These include the installation of a new concrete encased water main across the Bypass.

Sections of temporary pavement will be constructed along the median and adjacent to the eastbound slow lane of the Bypass, between Abernethy Road and Stirling Crescent. This will ensure traffic flow can be maintained when the water main relocation works are undertaken.

To minimise the impact of the temporary pavement works on traffic, construction activity will be undertaken during night shift, Monday to Sunday between 7pm and 7am. Works will commence from 29 January to mid March 2023.

Works will include

  • Traffic management
  • Removal of existing pavement and kerbing on a section of the Bypass
  • Earthworks to prepare the areas for pavement
  • Pavement and asphalt installation
  • Line marking
  • Barrier installation.

The works will involve the use of heavy construction plant and equipment, including but not limited to water carts, excavators, rollers, trucks, asphalt plant and lighting towers.

Traffic management

During the above works, various lane closures, reduced speed limits and traffic management will be implemented. Advance warning signage will be in place to advise road users of the changed traffic conditions.
