Speed limits during and after construction

Safety is our primary concern. During construction, we are reducing speed limits as traffic conditions change. This helps to protect you and our workers.

The following general speed limits apply to work zones from Bulla Road to Power Street:

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

These speed limits are being enforced.

Some of the changes we are making to the freeway will have a permanent impact on speed limits. 

When construction is finished, the speed limits will be:

  • Melbourne Airport to Melrose Drive, 100 km/h
  • Melrose Drive to CityLink Tunnels, 80 km/h.

This is consistent with speed limits on the M1 which are already set at 80 km/h.

VicRoads is considering introducing a variable speed limit outside peak hours for this section in consultation with Transurban, RACV and other stakeholders. Closer to the end of the CityLink Tulla Widening Project, VicRoads will confirm speed limits on sections of the Tullamarine Freeway during off peak hours.
