Millers Road interchange works enter last stages
As part of the West Gate Tunnel Project, we are widening the West Gate Freeway to create more capacity and reduce travel times. We are also upgrading key intersections to make it easier to get on and off the freeway.
From 9pm Friday 19 August to 5am Monday 24 October 2022, the West Gate Tunnel Project will carry out major road works at the Millers Road/West Gate Freeway interchange.
At the end of this construction period nearly all the West Gate Tunnel Project’s works at Millers Road will be completed.
To enable work to be completed as quickly as possible, construction activities will take place 24/7 and require road, ramp and lane closures. A number of signed, recommended detour routes will be in place to help you access the freeway and your local suburbs safely. The busiest part of these works, have also been timed in part to take advantage of the September school holidays when there are less vehicles on the road. Businesses along Millers Road will remain open while we work, with access available as normal.
We appreciate our work can be disruptive and thank you for your understanding. Works may be rescheduled in the event of unexpected impacts.
