Twelve Apostles Trail - Final Stage


December 2022 update

What's happened since the last update?

Weather has been a real issue for this project, impeding works onsite and impacting the ground condition.

  • The section from Curdievale Port Campbell Road to Great Ocean Road lookout is nearly finished. Just waiting for a gap in the weather to do final layer and drainage works.
  • All the necessary vegetation has been cleared at the lookout car park, with the car park to be levelled over the coming weeks.
  • Most the vegetation has been cleared along the Great Ocean Road (between the lookout car park and Campbells Creek bridge)
  • You will see that works have started at the Desailly Street / Lord Street intersection. The kerb and traffic island has been removed to make way for a new design around the way Desailly Street meets Lord Street. This will improve traffic management, safety and pedestrian access in this area.
  • We have finished locating services between Campbells Creek bridge to Port Campbell and plans are being developed for this section,
  • We are making small design changes to the trail bridge over Campbells Creek to avoid having to relocate Telstra infrastructure that has been identified on eastern side of bridge.

What's next?

  • Desailly Street / Lord Street intersection sealing - view the plan below.
  • Concrete path and pavement works at the lookout car park
  • Cattle underpass bridges installation

Lord Street/Desailly Street entrance plan

Access over Christmas

Once the lookout car park is finished, there will be access for walkers from the car park, down the steps and across the suspension bridge.

Cyclists will be directed via the Great Ocean Road to Port Campbell.

Traffic will be single lane at 40 km/hr while the trail is being built from the lookout car park to the bridge.

After hours, the speed limit along this Great Ocean Road section will remain at 60 km/ hr until the remainder of the trail into Port Campbell is completed. Thanks for your patience.
