Plan ahead for nightly freeway closures

Works are ramping up along CityLink and the West Gate Freeway with a series of freeway closures starting Saturday 11 February. Plan ahead for trips in and out of the CBD.

If you need to use CityLink and/or the West Gate Freeway in the evenings next week, you'll need to plan ahead for the following closures:

  • CityLink closed outbound from Racecourse Road to Bulla Road 
    Saturday 11 February 11:30pm to 7.30am
  • CityLink closed outbound from Racecourse Road to Bulla Road 
    Sunday 12 February 10:30pm to 4:30am 
  • CityLink closed inbound from Bulla Road to Flemington Road
    Monday 13 February 10:30pm to 4:30am
  • CityLink closed inbound from Bulla Road to Flemington Road
    Tuesday 14 February 10:30pm to 4:30am 
  • CityLink outbound from the West Gate Freeway to Flemington Road
    Wednesday 15 February 10:30pm to 4:30am 
  • CityLink inbound from Flemington Road to the West Gate Freeway
    Thursday 16 February 10.30pm to 4:30am

Entry ramps will close at 9pm. Signed detours will be in place.

What we're up to

We're in the thick of construction which means we'll need to schedule more night-time works to help our crews get on with upgrades at Bell Street and the Bolte Bridge, including:

  • Pouring concrete to build two lanes and a shared user path on a new bridge that will safely connect drivers, cyclists and pedestrians from Bell Street to Pascoe Vale Road,
  • Laying asphalt for a new lane in each direction on CityLink between the West Gate Freeway and Flemington Road, which will help ease congestion during peak periods, and
  • Installing on-road technologies for a new freeway management system, which will manage and improve traffic flow to keep drivers moving.

We're on track to complete these works by mid-2017.

Until then, we'll continue to schedule freeway, ramp and lane closures overnight to make sure we don't impact your trips during peak periods.

Thanks for your patience during our works.
