The project is calling for Expressions of Interest to complete six kilometres of works.
The successful tenderer will be responsible for delivering a four-kilometre section between Sydney Road and Edgards Road, and a two-kilometre section between Plenty Road and the Greensborough Highway.
The project will include:
- 20 kilometres of new lanes
- Widening the entry and exit ramps at Sydney Road and Edgars Road
- Building a dedicated exit ramp from the Hume Freeway to Edgars Road to stop dangerous weaving
- Installing an intelligent freeway management system with features like overhead electronic signs.
The two northern sections are expected to begin in late-2019 and be completed by early-2023.
