Building Safer Roads: Geelong-Bacchus Marsh Road
Civilex has been awarded safety improvement works on a 20km-stretch of the Geelong-Bacchus Marsh Road, running from Heales Road to Little River Ripley Road. Forming part of the Victorian government’s Towards Zero initiative works will include shoulder widening, centreline safety barriers, and installation of left-hand side flexibility safety barriers at several high-risk locations. The scope of works also includes construction of a new roundabout at the intersection of Elcho Road.
Geelong-Bacchus Marsh Road has been identified as one the most dangerous rural roads in Victoria, and the state government – via our client VicRoads and the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) – has committed to spending up to $47M on the Towards Zero project to rectify danger spots and help reduce road casualties.
Civilex has recently recommenced its civil construction work on the 11km-stretch on Melbourne Lancefield Road (between Romsey and Lancefield) after works were put on hold during the winter period.

We are proud to play a major part in improving road infrastructure on two of Victoria’s most dangerous rural roads for our community.
