Weekend of extended ramp and lane closures on Tulla Freeway and M80 Ring Road

5 June 2018

Last weekend's washed-out works have been RESCHEDULED to this weekend. Do you need to plan ahead for trips to the airport on 23 June and 24 June?

We postponed our works for last weekend due to forecasted bad weather. They will now take place this weekend, 22 June to 24 June, including daytime ramp closures on the M80 Ring Road and lane closures on the Tullamarine Freeway outbound.

If you are heading to Melbourne Airport you will be impacted. We anticipate delays of up to 15 minutes.

We strongly recommend leaving home earlier and allowing for plenty of additional time for your journey.
