Project description

The project will upgrade and widen the remaining sections of the M80 Metropolitan Ring Road. These include the Sunshine Avenue to Calder Freeway, Sydney Road to Edgars Road sections and the Princes Freeway to Western Highway sections.


The project is expected to reduce congestion by increasing capacity. The project is also expected to reduce travel times and improve safety. The completion of the full upgrade will enable these benefits to be realised across the entire corridor.


The Australian and Victorian governments are both contributing $500 million.


Construction on the Sunshine Avenue to Calder Freeway section commenced in March 2016 and completed March 2022. Construction on the Sydney Road to Edgars Road section commenced in October 2019 and completed in May 2022. The Princess Freeway to the Western Highway section is in planning.
