We’re upgrading the M80 Ring Road from the Princes Freeway to the Greensborough Highway.


The M80 Ring Road Upgrade involves widening the freeway, widening on and off ramps and installing a new freeway management system.  The new system will manage traffic flow and respond to incidents along 38km of road from the Princes Freeway at Laverton North to the Greensborough Highway at Greensborough.

The project will increase capacity and improve safety on the freeway, creating more reliable travel times.

To minimise disruption to motorists and residents, the upgrade is being staged in sections.

Remaining sections

Northern sections

The two sections between Sydney Road and Edgars Road and from Plenty Road to Greensborough Highway will add 20km of new lanes to the M80, boost capacity, slash congestion and improve safety for drivers. The upgrade will include:

  • additional lanes in each direction
  • widening and lengthening entry and exit ramps
  • new separated roads
  • a new freeway management system.

Three bidders have been invited to submit tenders to complete the two northern sections.

Construction is expected to begin in late 2019 for completion by early 2023.

The road will remain open during this time, and any necessary lane closures will be confined to off-peak times where possible to minimise disruption.
