Removing 50 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne
The CityLink Tulla Widening project is improving safety, reducing congestion and cutting travel times for the hundreds of thousands of people who use the busy corridor every day. The project will make travel to Melbourne Airport more reliable and involves:
- Extra lanes in each direction between the Bolte Bridge and Melbourne Airport on CityLink and the Tullamarine Freeway
- Extra lanes on the Bolte Bridge and a section of the West Gate Freeway (eastbound) between the Bolte Bridge and Power Street
- Upgrades to a number of intersections, including Flemington Road, Bell Street, English Street and Mickleham Road
- A new freeway management system to control traffic flow and incidents on the freeway.
The Australian and Victorian Governments are partnering with Transurban to build the $1.3 billion project. Works started in 2015, with the upgrade on track for completion in 2018.
The CityLink Tulla Widening project will be completed in 2018
