Major works in June, July and August 2021 include:

  • Williamstown, Werribee, Ballarat, Geelong, Lilydale and Frankston lines: Works continue to remove more than 20 dangerous and congested level crossings, with the South Gippsland Highway level crossing gone for good this winter.
  • Sunbury Line: Upgrading the track, power and platforms to prepare for more modern trains to run on the line.
  • Geelong, Warrnambool, Bendigo, Echuca and Swan Hill lines: Continuing work to upgrade the regional train network.
  • Greensborough and Bulleen roads: Relocating gas, water and sewer pipes and drains for North East Link, the missing link in Melbourne’s freeway network.
  • Monash and Princes freeways: Adding 36km of extra lanes to make it safer and easier to travel around Melbourne.
  • M80 Ring Road and Hume Freeway: Adding new lanes and building new on and off ramps.
  • West Gate Freeway: Expanding the freeway from 8 to 12 lanes.

There will also be other critical maintenance work across the public transport and road networks.

Plan ahead and allow extra time.
