M80 Ring Road Upgrade

We’re upgrading the M80 Ring Road from the Princes Freeway to the Greensborough Highway


13kmof new lanes


30minute travel time savings


The M80 Ring Road is being upgraded and widened to create faster, safer and more reliable journeys for more than 200,000 drivers who use the road every day.
The project will increase capacity and improve safety on the freeway, creating more reliable travel times.

Sunshine to Calder Freeway

The section between Sunshine Avenue and Calder Freeway was completed in October 2018. The section now includes:

  • four lanes in each direction, from Sunshine Avenue to the EJ Whitten Bridge and Calder Freeway
  • five lanes in each direction, across the bridge through to the Calder Freeway
  • a freeway management system, including overhead speed limits and lane use signs, ramp signals, CCTV and variable messaging signs to manage traffic flow and response times to incidents.

Northern sections

The two sections between Sydney Road and Edgars Road and from Plenty Road to Greensborough Highway will add 20 kilometres of new lanes to the M80. The upgrade will include:

  • additional lanes in each direction
  • widening and lengthening entry and exit ramps
  • new separated roads
  • a new freeway management system.

Construction is expected to begin in late 2019 for completion by early 2023.
