Overview

One of our top priorities is to keep you up to date with our progress as we build the M80 Upgrade. We want to make sure that you're prepared for any works that may affect you.

We'd like your feedback on how we’ve been communicating with you over the past six months. This is so we can make sure that we’re providing you with the information that you need, when you need it and in the way you'd like to receive it.

Project background

We’re upgrading the M80 Ring Road between Sydney Road and Edgars Road. Major construction started in early 2020 and is scheduled for completion in early 2023.

The M80 Ring Road is one of Melbourne’s busiest and largest freeways, spanning 38 kilometres between Laverton North and Greensborough.

We’re delivering the M80 Upgrade in stages to minimise disruption to motorists and residents.

What we’re doing:

  • adding new lanes in each direction between Sydney Road and Edgars Road
  • installing a smart freeway lane management system to better manage traffic flow
  • extending the Sydney Road on and off ramps to give drivers more time to merge
  • building new on and off ramps at Edgars Road to improve safety
  • improving access from the Hume Freeway to the M80 Ring Road and Edgars Road
  • installing ramp-metering technology to manage the flow of traffic onto the freeway
  • upgrading the cycling and pedestrian bridge.

The M80 Upgrade will:

  • provide more reliable journeys for more than 165,000 motorists each day
  • improve travel times
  • improve safety by minimising merging
  • provide better access to other freeways, interstate links, local and arterial roads and the future North East Link
  • improve traffic flow
  • reduce congestion during peak hours
  • enhance freight efficiency for over 22,000 trucks each day
  • provide better access to employment hubs.
