VicRoads has been working hard to secure the landslide site and is happy to announce that both lanes on the Great Ocean Road are now open between Wye and Sep, in time for the Christmas holidays.
The State Government is investing a further $53 million to undertake urgent repairs on the Great Ocean Road, to minimise landslip risk and improve the iconic tourist route.
The works include improving the surface of the road and undertaking repairs, which include new rock fall netting, retaining walls and armour stone to prevent erosion by waves.
New traffic management technology including electronic traveller information signs, CCTV monitoring devices, real time traffic counters and more signage, will also be installed to help residents and tourists in an emergency.
These works and improvements will go a long way towards minimising risks such as rockfalls, landslides and erosion – keeping the road open for business.
The works will start in early 2017 and include further investigations along the 240km stretch of road.
