We're upgrading the M80 Ring Road from Laverton North to Greensborough.

Overview

The M80 Upgrade will widen the freeway, widen on and off ramps and install a new freeway management system along 38km of road from Laverton North to Greensborough.

The new system will include overhead electronic signs to communicate speed limits and lane availability, manage traffic flow and respond to incidents from the Princes Freeway to the Greensborough Highway.

The project will increase capacity, improve safety and create more reliable travel times for the 165,000 motorists who use this road each day.

To minimise disruption the upgrade is being staged in sections, with the next stage to upgrade key interchanges and add new lanes between Sydney Road and Edgars Road.
