Motorists are advised that road works have resumed on the Bass Highway and Korumburra-Inverloch Road at Inverloch.

The safety upgrades and road repairs temporarily stopped over the Christmas/New Year period to minimise inconvenience to the community and tourists over the busiest part of the holidays.

Preparatory works such as drain cleaning is now underway and the next stage of road repairs will start from around Thursday 15 of January.

This will include road rehabilitation works where the road is dug up, rebuilt and resealed to make it stronger and more waterproof.

The new turning lanes into Bear Street and Cashin Street were completed prior to Christmas.

Progress is well underway on the construction of the new entrances to the Cemetery, with works due to be completed at this site by around the end of January.

The construction of a new roundabout at the intersection of Korumburra-Inverloch Road and Bass Highway is due to be carried out at the start of February.

The majority of works will be carried out between the hours of 7am and 6pm.

Road users are advised to allow extra time to travel through the road works area as there may be minor delays.

From time to time traffic will be reduced to a single lane through work sites and will also have to temporarily travel on unsealed surfaces.We understand that road works can be an inconvenience for motorists however, the best time to carry out road works is during the warm and dry weather conditions over summer.

VicRoads thanks motorists for their patience and reminds drivers to obey the reduced speed limits and temporary traffic conditions for their own safety and the safety of workers.
