Building faster and safer connections

We are building an elevated road running above the centre of Footscray Road. The road will allow for faster and safer travel between the tunnels and CityLink, Dynon Road, Footscray Road and Wurundjeri Way by joining to new bridges over the Maribyrnong River, providing a vital second river crossing for drivers.

The elevated road will run above the centre of Footscray Road, running from the Maribyrnong River to CityLink.

The elevated road will connect drivers to:

  • CityLink
  • Dynon Road
  • Footscray Road
  • The port

Connections for the freight industry will be improved with direct access to the port via ramps at Mackenzie Road and Appleton Dock Road.


The project will also build a new 2.5km elevated ‘veloway’ on Footscray Road, giving cyclists a safe express route to and from the city and supporting the growing number of Melburnians riding to work each day.
