Major works complete on CTW

18 April, 2019CityLink Tulla Widening


The transformation of one of Melbourne’s busiest freeways is now complete, with major works finished on the CityLink Tulla Widening (CTW) project.

The $1.3 billion project has increased capacity by 30%, reducing congestion and resulting in improved travel times along 26 kms of the Tullamarine Freeway, CityLink and West Gate Freeway from Melbourne Airport through to Southbank.

Connectivity has been improved through a number of interchange upgrades, and a new freeway management system installed on CityLink, the Tullamarine Freeway and Calder Freeway has improved travel times by controlling the flow of traffic on and entering the freeways and helping traffic cope with accidents and breakdowns.

The CityLink Tullamarine Freeway corridor is one of the busiest roads in Melbourne, transporting more than 210,000 vehicles per day through its busiest section.

You can now enjoy travel time savings of 17 minutes on a round trip between the Bolte Bridge and Melbourne Airport, with average speeds during the morning peak nearly doubling since the new lanes opened.

The project has laid more than 260,000 tonnes of asphalt and more than five million work has been carried out.

While all major works are complete, there are still some minor works, checks and maintenance to take place overnight. These works will be completed by mid-2019.
