About Victoria’s Big Build
Victoria is currently in a transport construction boom with 29 major road and rail projects being built. It’s not just about current works, with significant planning also underway for a number of projects that are set to transform the way Victorians travel. Highlights of Victoria’s Big Build include:
- A second underground railway, the Metro Tunnel
- Victoria’s biggest ever commitment to remove level crossings
- $1.57 billion Regional Rail Revival package
- A second major road connection from the west, the West Gate Tunnel
- Victoria’s biggest road tunnel and project, the North East Link
- Major upgrades to some of our busiest freeways including the M80, CityLink, Tullamarine and Monash
- The Mernda Rail Extension project, bringing trains to growing outer suburbs in Melbourne's north.
More construction, more jobs
These projects, combined with many more local road upgrades and public transport improvements, mean more jobs for Victorians.
This massive overhaul of our transport network is creating tens of thousands of jobs.

Coordinating major construction and disruptions
The Office of the Coordinator General oversees many of the major transport projects in construction and planning including the Level Crossing Removal Project, Metro Tunnel, West Gate Tunnel and North East Link.
The Coordinator General works closely with Transport for Victoria, VicRoads and Public Transport Victoria to ensure major construction activities and disruptions are coordinated across the network. This includes plans to keep people moving through major work periods. We also work with industry to ensure it has the skilled workers needed to deliver Victoria’s massive construction program.
VicRoads continues to oversee a number of major road and freeway projects including the M80 Ring Road Upgrade, Streamlining Hoddle Street, Swan Street Bridge Upgrade, Chandler Highway Upgrade and the Western Roads Upgrade.
