Jumbuk Road closure

Testing during construction in January 2023 found that both lanes of Jumbuk Road needed to be closed, for the duration of the works, to allow council to properly restore the road.

Mayor of Latrobe City Council, Kellie O'Callaghan said while the works are inconvenient for the local community, once they are completed the road will be restored to its original condition. "Council has been discussing the road changes with local residents and held a meeting with affected community members in February, proposing the detour route."

"We thank community members for their patience during this time and will provide updates about the progress of the road and when it will open," said the Mayor. Council has identified a suitable detour which can be viewed on council's website via Jumbuk Road - May 2023 Detour page.
