Heaths Road and Morris Road Traffic Woes To Continue.


Commuters are feeling the burden when travelling in and around Hoppers Crossing lately due to the peripheral roadworks as a result of the level crossing removal at Hoppers Crossing Junction.

Turn movements have been limited at the intersection of Heaths Road and Morris Road in Hoppers Crossing since  7pm Sunday 30 January and will continue through  to 7pm Sunday 27 February.

The roundabout at Heaths Rd and Old Geelong Rd

These are the current changes:

  • No left turn from Morris Road southbound to Heaths Road. Detour via Morris Road and Old Geelong Road roundabout.
  • No right turn from Morris Road northbound to Heaths Road. Detour via Morris Road, Hogans Road, Derrimut Road and following Heaths Road eastbound through the intersection.
  • No right turn from Heaths Road eastbound into Morris Road. Detour via Heaths Road and Old Geelong Road roundabout.

See map below on how to navigate yourself around.

And it doesn’t stop there, from 7pm Thursday 24 February to 7pm Sunday 27 February there will be no right turn from Morris Road (southbound) to Heaths Road with traffic being reduced to a single lane, with southbound movements through the intersection only. There will be a detour via Morris Road and Old Geelong Road.

The Level Crossing Removal Authority says that during these works, they will be upgrading the intersection with better traffic light phasing for more efficient traffic flow.
