Circuit Modifications

Albert Park Circuit Modifications Project

The Australian Grand Prix Corporation (AGPC) has commenced civil modification and resurfacing works at the Albert Park Grand Prix Circuit.

The Albert Park Grand Prix Circuit has not been resurfaced since it was originally laid in 1995. The circuit modifications project will incorporate resurfacing in addition to several geometric circuit changes, most noticeably on Lakeside Drive.

In consultation with Parks Victoria, the project will also deliver several community benefits aligned with the Albert Park Master Plan (APMP), including increased lakeside parkland and safer traffic arrangements for road and park users.

The resurfacing and circuit modifications project is being completed in three phases:

  • Phase one included the widening of the pit lane, which has now been completed.
  • The second phase is circuit modification works that will run until July 2021.
  • The final phase is resurfacing works, which is planned to take place in November.

AGPC has now completed two of the three phases of the circuit modifications, including the Pit Lane Widening (Nov-Dec 2020) and Circuit Geometric Realignment (Feb-Aug 2021).

The final phase, which involves the full circuit resurfacing will be completed in December 2021 and January 2022, prior to the Formula 1® Heineken Australian Grand Prix 2022 in April.

These resurfacing works will be undertaken over the Christmas and New Year period within the Victorian Summer school holidays to reduce the road closure impact on the local community and park tenants and clubs. Please see the scheduled road closures outlined below.

  • Lakeside Drive (Albert Road – Village Green Drive) will require two separate closures. It will be closed from Monday, 20 December 2021 to Friday, 24 December 2021* to undertake milling and asphalt works and Tuesday, 4 January 2022 to Saturday, 8 January 2022* for paving.
