Project Description

The project will construct a new motorway between the M80 Ring Road at Greensborough and the Eastern Freeway at Bulleen Road. It will also widen and upgrade the Eastern Freeway.


The project will provide Melbourne with a complete orbital road connection for the first time and will increase capacity on the Eastern Freeway. It will improve access and reducing travel times for both freight and commuter traffic and will take trucks off local streets in Melbourne's northern suburbs.


The Australian Government has committed up to $1.75 billion to the project.
