The planned closure on Benalla-Yarrawonga Road near Benalla, between Link Road and Benalla-Winton Road (Sydney Road) for rehabilitation works will continue until this Saturday, February 9.  


The road closure started Monday and will allow for asphalt rehabilitation works to be conducted 24/7 (weather permitting).
During the closure, traffic will be detoured as followed:

  •  Vehicles approaching from Baddaginnie-Benalla Road who need access to Benalla-Yarrawonga Road will need to turn left onto Faithfull Street, then follow the detour route to the Midland Highway and onto Link Road.
  • Vehicles travelling south on the Hume Freeway who need access to Benalla-Yarrawonga Road will need to continue past the Winton exit ramp and exit onto Mansfield Road. Vehicles will then need to follow the detour signs to Faithfull Street, Ackerly Avenue and the Midland Highway to Link Road.
