VicRoads is responsible for providing road and traffic information to the community. On this website you will find information about planned roadworks and unplanned (emergency) road closures and traffic alerts. It is Victoria's official source of information about roads and traffic during incidents and emergencies that may impact road users.
If you feel you need more information or if you would like to report a road hazard, call the VicRoads Traffic Management Centre on 13 11 70 (24 hours/7 days a week).
