South Road detour for heavy vehicles

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

19 January 2017

South Road between Cross Road and Anzac Highway remains closed due to a structural issue with the bikeway attached to the South Road tram overpass.

B-Double, PBS level 2A type vehicles, low loaders up to 4m wide, all terrain cranes, and special purpose vehicles that operate on the published relevant routes can visit the DIT RAVnet online map system for alternative approved routes or bypass to get around the road closure.

Please visit:

If an operator has a specific trip permits already issued  that may have access through the road closure they will need to contact DPTI permits (1300 882 249 option 3) to have their permit re-issued.

One option for B-Double vehicles travelling north along South Road can turn left onto Cross Road, right onto Marion Road, right onto Richmond Road and left onto South Road.

The department apologises for the inconvenience and South Road will be reopened as soon as possible.
