The City of Albany will be undertaking resurfacing of Albany Highway between Macedon Street and Barker Road, a distance of approximately 1.2km.  Pavement repairs and patching has recently been completed in preparation for the works, which will involve the removal of the existing surface using a large profiling machine, before the placement of a bitumen seal. This will then be followed by two layers of asphalt. The work will also involve the replacement of sections of kerbing as well as drainage pits and grates.

Please see below for dates and lane closures in January and February.  Further information in regards to road closures in March will be published in February 2019. 

Reconstruction works are expected to be completed in March 2019.
