A stretch of road in Point Cook will soon get a new lease on life, with works planned to commence on the upgrade of Hacketts Road.
At last night’s Ordinary Council Meeting (Tuesday 7th May 2019) Councillors voted to appoint Bitu-mill as the contractor to widen and seal the busy road.
Wyndham City Mayor, Cr Mia Shaw, said the $4 million Wyndham City upgrade of Hacketts Road in Point Cook from Aviation Road to Tamworth Grove in Point Cook would help to alleviate congestion between Point Cook, Werribee South and the Princes Freeway.
“At present, up to 450 vehicles use this section of Hacketts Road each day,” Cr Shaw said.
“This number is expected to rise in the coming months, with more development taking place in the south of Point Cook, and the State Government’s works on the Duncans Road interchange ramping up.”
“Reducing traffic congestion and improving the safety of our local roads is one of our highest priorities at Wyndham City, which is exactly what this project will do.”
Cr Shaw said that while construction was underway, Hacketts Road would be closed between Aviation Road and Tamworth Grove.
“We apologise for the inconvenience, but closing the road in its entirety will ensure that these much-needed works will be complete as soon as possible.”
“We thank drivers for their patience as we deliver these important works.”
