THE Northern Highway southbound entry ramp to the Hume Freeway at Wallan will be closed this week for night works.

The works started Sunday, May 21 and are planned to continue to Saturday, May 27.

The ramp will be open during the day and will close from 7pm until 5am each day.

Drivers can detour using Watson Street to the Wandong interchange to access the Hume Freeway.

During this closure, the northbound off ramp into Wallan will not be impacted.

The works are part of the State Government’s delivery of large-scale, long-term repairs on flood-affected roads across Victoria as part of the $165 million emergency road repair blitz.

Crews are working to repair the state’s most badly flood-damaged roads, along with key freight and travel routes.

The works include completely rebuilding the most badly-damaged sections of road, along with major asphalt patching, landslip repairs, drain and culvert cleaning, debris removal and more.
