About the project

We are upgrading the Heavy Vehicle Driver Rest Area on the Bass Highway between Nine Mile Road and Reynolds Road.

We will also be installing an amenities building and bus shelter, and upgrading the existing weighbridge area.

Construction will start from 19 April 2022 and continue until October 2022.


We will start working on Tuesday, 19 April 2022 and should be finished in until October 2022.

We will be working between 7:00 am and 6:00 pm, Monday to Friday.

We will let you know in advance if we need to do any work outside these times.

Traffic changes

There will be a reduced speed limit and single lane closures during our work.

Please allow up to five minutes extra travel time, keep to speed limits and follow the directions of traffic controllers and signs.
