Tullamarine Freeway lane closures over Mickleham Road

To create new freeway lanes over Mickleham Road, we need to connect new bridge segments to the existing bridge. We do this using a stitch pour where we use concrete to 'glue' the new and existing sections together.

It's crucial that we minimise vibrations while the concrete is setting. So we'll be closing the lanes closest to the new concrete and reducing speed limits. The concrete can take up to 24 hours to set so even if you don't see any workers, the concrete is working hard!

Getting to Melbourne Airport

There will be significant delays getting to Melbourne Airport via the freeway. While the freeway will be open, we strongly recommend allowing extra time for your trip and using one of the alternative routes described below.
