Roadworks will continue despite the pandemic crisis, and drivers should be aware sections of Sturt Street will be closed overnight on Thursday.
The eastbound lanes of Sturt Street will be closed between Talbot St and Ascot St and between Errard St and Raglan St from 6pm Thursday March 26 until 7am Friday March 27.
Signed detours will be in place.
The westbound lanes will remain open.
Regional Roads Victoria western director Michael Bailey said in a statement the works are part of the $425 million maintenance program across the state.
"Our crews are asphalting sections of Sturt Street this week to provide a smoother and more durable road surface - and we thank drivers for their patience while this work is being carried out," he said.
However, VicRoads customer service centres will change their operations in light of the crisis - light vehicle drive tests and computer-based tests have been suspended, as well as medical review driving assessments.
The suspensions will be in place for one month but may be extended.
Heavy vehicle and motorcycle assessments will continue.
Exceptional circumstances may be granted for special needs cases, such as for primary care givers.
In a statement, the state government's Department of Transport head of transport services Jeroen Weimar said the temporary changes were to protect staff and customers.
"75 per cent of VicRoads transactions can be completed online," he said.
"I urge anyone who has a registration or licensing need to head to the VicRoads website to see whether they can avoid attending a customer service centre unnecessarily."
A Department of Transport media statement asks customers to check to see whether their registration or licensing transactions can be carried out online via the dedicated coronavirus transactions page on the VicRoads website.
This includes registration and licensing renewals.
To ensure social distancing can occur in VicRoads Customer Services Centres, counter service has been reduced by 50 per cent for customers and staff to ensure those who need to visit stay a safe distance from each other.
All VicRoads Customer Service Centres will be adhering to the four square metre rule as part of current social distancing measures.
Everyone impacted by these changes is being contacted directly, and the VicRoads customer relations team has been enhanced to ensure urgent matters are dealt with as quickly as possible.
