Work begins on the English Street exit ramp extension

12 April 2017

Work has now started on the extension of the English Street exit ramp for north bound traffic wanting to access Essendon Fields and Airport West.

This extension will remove the dangerous weave that currently affects traffic merging onto the freeway from Bulla Road and traffic wanting to get off at English Street a short distance later.

Over the coming weeks, a number of changes will take effect in this area that drivers need to be aware of.

The Bulla Road outbound entry ramp will be closed on Wednesday 26, Thursday 27 and Friday 28 April from 8.30pm to 5am to allow for service relocation, line marking and barrier placement.

Traffic will be detoured via the Calder Freeway, Keilor Road and Matthews Avenue.

From Saturday 22 April, a reduced speed limit and changed lane conditions will take effect until the ramp extension is completed in mid 2018.
