Hall Road Upgrade completed ahead of schedule

The Hall Road Upgrade in Melbourne outer south-east is now complete, nine months ahead of the expected completion date.

The project was delivered through equal funding of $141.25 million from both the Australian Government and the Victorian Government.

It is estimated 17,000 daily users will benefit from 5.2 kilometres of new lanes and signalised intersections at McCormicks Road, Taylors Road, Western Port Highway, and Evans and Cranbourne-Frankston roads.

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. 

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.

Federal Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government, Catherine King highlighted the ongoing investment being made across the south-east of Melbourne.

“The Hall Road Upgrade is one of a number of major improvements to the road and rail network in Melbourne’s south-east to connect growing communities, ease congestion on local roads, and improve access to public transport,” Minister King said.

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