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.

Creating a new dedicated exit road to Bell Street

We are building a separate two-lane road from the Calder-Tulla interchange to Bell Street. Find out how this will make it safer for freeway traffic to access the Bell Street exit.
