Final asphalting works
Crews will be carrying out asphalting work between Millers Road and the M80 Ring Road Interchange, and of the ramps between Kororoit Creek and Millers roads. To do this, there’ll be road and lane closures at different times between Millers Road and the M80 interchange.
Gantry installation works
46 overhead gantries are being installed on the West Gate Freeway, M80 Ring Road and Princes Freeway including interchange ramps. These gantries will hold information such as traffic signs or electronic signs that show the speed limit or lane closures. They will also eventually carry toll points as well, when the project becomes operational by 2025.
To install these gantries, there will be a number of overnight freeway closures of the West Gate or Princes freeways in one or both directions at a time to ensure they can be safely installed
These works are planned during the summer period when there are typically less vehicles on the road and when the asphalting process can be the most efficient.
Significant delays are expected.
