A better connected west

We are building new connections between the West Gate Tunnel and the city, via an elevated roadway over Footscray Road that will provide greater flexibility for Melbourne's west, with new route choices to CityLink, inner northern suburbs and the city.

New connections

Once the project is completed, drivers will have more choice when travelling from the west to the city and northern suburbs. The new connections will provide another way to travel to universities and hospitals located to the north of the city, and faster access to Melbourne Airport.

The project will deliver:

  • new connections between the elevated roadway and CityLink, Dynon Road and the existing Footscray Road
  • widening of Wurundjeri Way by 1 lane in each direction between Dudley Street and Flinders Street
  • an extension of Wurundjeri Way to the west, connecting into Dynon Road to the east of Moonee Ponds Creek, providing a bypass of the CBD.
