About the project
The CityLink Tulla Widening project will increase capacity, reduce travel times and improve safety on CityLink and the Tullamarine Freeway.
What's happening now?
As well as general widening works, we are improving a number of interchanges on CityLink and the Tullamarine Freeway, and installing a new freeway management system on CityLink and the the Calder and Tullamarine Freeways.
New ramp signals on inbound entry ramps
We are installing ramp signals at seven inbound entry ramps on the Calder Freeway. We'll are also widening some of the ramps. Find out more about what we're doing on the Calder Freeway.
CityLink / Tullamarine Freeway
Improving the Mickleham Road interchange
We are adding dedicated lanes from the Tullamarine Freeway to the M80 Ring Road, and Mickleham Road to the M80 Ring Road. We are also adding an extra lane for entering the Tullamarine Freeway city-bound from Mickleham Road. Find out more about the upgrades to the Mickleham Road interchange
Replacing the English Street bridge
We are rebuilding the English Street bridge to cater for the widened Tullamarine Freeway and to improve access to Essendon Fields. Find out more about the English Street upgrade
Building a new dedicated exit to English Street
We’re creating a new dedicated exit for northbound traffic to access Essendon Fields and Airport West via English Street. The new exit will begin at Bulla Road, 2.3km earlier than the current exit. Find out more about the new dedicated exit to English Street.
Creating new earlier exits and a dedicated road to Bell Street
We are building a separate two-lane road from the Calder-Tulla interchange to Bell Street. Find out about the new earlier exits to Bell Street.
Improving the Bell Street interchange
We are building a new bridge to connect Bell Street and Pascoe Vale Road. We are also adding an extra outbound lane from Bell Street onto the freeway to relieve congestion on Bell Street. Find out more about the upgrades to the Bell Street interchange.
Improving the Flemington Road exit
We are making this busy interchange safer and more reliable by changing how the traffic flows through it. Find out more about the changes to the Flemington Road / Mount Alexander Road interchange.
Upgrading the Bolte Bridge's inbound connections to the West Gate Freeway
We are adding extra lanes and new technology to reduce congestion and improve safety on both the Bolte Bridge and the inbound lanes of the West Gate Freeway. Find out more about the upgrades to the Bolte Bridge inbound connections to the West Gate Freeway.
Webb Dock access improvements
The Webb Dock Access project will better connect freight from Webb Dock to the freeway network. Find out how this will make it easier and safer for trucks to enter the Bolte Bridge and help traffic flow on the M1.
We have a number of technical reports and fact sheets available for downloading and printing. We also have a project overview in six languages.
