Building smarter freeways

30 March 2017

New technology will improve your travel

We're rolling out new freeway management systems across Melbourne's major freeways, including CityLink, which will make journeys safer and more reliable.

These new systems are designed to control traffic flow and improve the way we manage breakdowns and accidents.

Freeway management systems are made up of:

  • ramp signals to stagger vehicles entering the freeway
  • overhead lane signs to control traffic flow
  • on-road message boards displaying real-time travel times
  • CCTV cameras and sensor technology to monitor breakdowns and accidents

This new technology will keep you moving and make your journeys smoother and safer.

Find out what changes are being made on CityLink as the first new lanes open between Flemington Road and the West Gate Bridge.
