Works will occur on roughly 500 metres of the road between Hoppers Lane (east of the Princes Freeway) and Hacketts Road. Sneydes Road will be closed from 10pm on Friday, March 24 to 5am Monday, March 27.
Teams will be working around the clock from Friday night until Monday morning, when traffic volumes are much lower, in order to complete the project with minimal disruption to the community.
These works involve a comprehensive rehabilitation of the road, including strengthening the lower layer to make it more waterproof and stable, as well as sealing the road to restore its surface.
Motorists should allow for up to 20 minutes more for the detours that include the Princes Freeway, Point Cook Road, Boardwalk Boulevard, Dunnings and Hacketts roads.
Local access will be maintained for residents near the works area. Heavy vehicles need to take the detour via Point Cook, Aviation and Duncan roads.
A Department of Transport and Planning spokesperson said these works are essential in order to keep Sneydes Road functioning as a key freight and travel route for commuters and businesses in the Point Cook and Werribee areas.
“Every day, more than 18,000 drivers rely on Sneydes Road to connect them to education, employment, family and friends.” “The project will make the road foundation stronger and more water resistant, in addition to sealing the road for a smoother journey,” they said.
