CityLink Tulla Widening

Reducing traffic and travel times on CityLink and the Tullamarine Freeway


24kmof freeway upgrades


30Up to 30 minutes of travel time savings


The CityLink Tulla Widening project has reduced congestion and cut travel times for the hundreds of thousands of people who use the busy corridor every day. The project has made travel to Melbourne Airport more reliable with:

  • 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 key interchanges, 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 partnered with Transurban to build the $1.3 billion project. Works started in 2015, with all new lanes open and interchanges upgraded in late 2018.

Whilst all major works on the project are complete, minor works, checks and maintenance on the ramps and freeway will continue until mid-2019.
