About the project

The CityLink Tulla Widening project will increase capacity, reduce travel times and improve safety on CityLink and the Tullamarine Freeway.

Find out more about the project's benefits and what's involved.

What's happening?

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.

Calder Freeway

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 earlier exits to Bell Street

We’ve built a separate two-lane road from the Calder-Tulla interchange to Bell Street to help reduce weaving. Find out about the new earlier exits to Bell Street.

Improving the Bell Street interchange

A new bridge connecting Bell Street to Pascoe Vale Road, together with an extra outbound lane from Bell Street onto the freeway will relieve congestion on Bell Street. Find out more about the upgrades to the Bell Street interchange.

Improving the Flemington Road interchange

We’ve made this busy interchange safer and more reliable by changing how 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

Extra lanes and new technology on the Bolte Bridge and West Gate Freeway will reduce congestion and improve safety. 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.
