The section of O’Leary Way south of Werribee Vale Rd, should be open to traffic in the coming weeks.
A delay with the transfer of land from developer to Council prevented the road being opened at the same time the rest of Halletts Way was opened – which occurred earlier this month with a successful official opening and fun run.
“Unfortunately, we couldn’t open the southern section as Council was waiting for transfer of titles caught up in a sale of the property that is stuck at the State Revenue Office,” Infrastructure General Manager Phil Jeffrey said.
“The delay in this process was out of our control and unfortunately, this section couldn’t be opened without the titles being transferred.
“As soon as we are in receipt of the title, all documents will be lodged with Land Victoria to finalise the issue and the road will be open to the public, which is expected in the coming weeks.
“We ask the community to obey the closure in place and not drive on this section of road until this has occurred. We apologise to the community for any inconvenience this has caused and will provide updates via our website and social media channels when the road is opened.”
