Here you'll find details of traffic impacts, detour information and general advice to help you plan ahead.

Nearly all our works take place overnight. You can expect nightly lane closures and speed limit reductions on CityLink, the Tullamarine Freeway, the Calder Freeway and the West Gate Freeway. These will cause delays so please allow extra time for your journey.

Live traffic information

This website advises of upcoming planned disruptions. You can get real-time traffic information from VicTraffic. You can also follow @VicTraffic and @citylinkmelb on Twitter.

Speed limits during construction

During construction, we are varying speed limits as traffic conditions change. This helps to protect you and our workers.

The following general speed limits apply to work zones:

  • during night works, between 40 km/h and 60 km/h
  • all other times, 80 km/h. 

These speed limits are being enforced.

Breakdown procedures during construction

If you break down:

  • Pull into the left lane or an emergency bay if possible.
  • Remain in your car and turn your hazard lights on. An incident response vehicle will be with you, usually in under 5 minutes.
  • You can speak to the CityLink Control Room on 13 26 29, if necessary.
