Bell Street interchange upgrade
We’ve made changes to the Bell Street interchange:
- A wider and longer the freeway entry ramp with new traffic signals
- A new bridge connecting Bell Street to Pascoe Vale Road.
How it works
- If you’re heading outbound on the wider ramp, you can use the left lane for direct access to Bulla Road or the right lane to merge onto the freeway.
- If you’re looking to access Pascoe Vale Road, you’ll take the new bridge.
Improving your journey
A safer connection
Before the upgrade, drivers travelling on Bell Street toward Pascoe Vale Road needed to merge left. This is the driver's blind side, and the angle made it difficult to see oncoming traffic.
The new bridge provides a safer connection by removing this dangerous merge. It also reduces the need for weaving by motorists trying to get into the correct lane.
Reducing delays on Bell Street
The bridge frees up another lane on Bell Street for outbound freeway traffic, and the increased capacity has reduced congestion on Bell Street.
Entry ramp signals will control the flow of traffic and ease congestion on the freeway.
Better, safer access to Moonee Ponds Creek Trail
The bridge provides pedestrians and cyclists with a safer connection between Bell Street and Pascoe Vale Road, while improving access to the Moonee Ponds Creek trail.
