Pavement Repair and Resurfacing Works – Old Cleveland Road, Belmont

Pavement repair and resurfacing works – Old Cleveland Road, Belmont

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) will be conducting pavement repair and resurfacing works westbound on Old Cleveland Road between Main Drive and Mount Petrie Road, Belmont.

These works are being undertaken as part of TMR’s maintenance program to improve the road surface and enhance road safety for all road users.

While works are underway, detours will be in place as per the details below.

Work activities

  • Removal and replacement of asphalt.
  • Reinstatement of line marking.
  • Final line marking to improve the reflectivity and longevity of the road.


  • Works will commence late October 2023 and are expected to take approximately five nights to complete, weather and site conditions permitting.
  • Typical construction hours will be from 8pm to 5am, Sunday to Friday. Night works are required for road user safety and to avoid what would otherwise be extensive traffic queuing and disruption to the road network. While most of the works will be undertaken at night, some Saturday or other out of hours works may be required.
  • While works are underway, a temporary closure of the Old Cleveland Road off ramp to the Gateway Motorway interchange, will be required between 9pm and 5am, detours will be in place:
    • Access to the Gateway Motorway Northbound and Southbound from Old Cleveland Road will be detoured as follows:
      • Westbound traffic will be redirected to Old Cleveland Road, where they will make a u-turn at Scrub Road and take the Gateway Motorway exit in the respective direction.
  • Final line marking works to improve the reflectivity and longevity of the road line marking will be applied approximately six weeks after the completion of road resurfacing to allow for adequate curing.

Expected impacts

  • Temporary changed traffic conditions: Road shoulder and lane closures, traffic detours, roadworks speed limit reductions and short-term traffic disruptions. Please allow extra time when planning your travel and follow the directions of roadside signage and traffic controllers.
  • Temporary construction noise: Machinery and plant will be in use and for a short time, nearby residents and businesses can expect some increased noise, dust and odour. Reversing beepers and flashing lights will be used for safety.

On completion, TMR officers will continue to review the site for up to three months. During this time TMR will assess the work undertaken for longevity and quality. In some cases, TMR may need to request further work at the location to rectify any defects.

Every effort will be made to minimise impacts on the local community and surrounds.

TMR appreciates your patience and cooperation while these important works are carried out.

The event is finished.
