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


In December 2020, we upgraded the Edgars Road interchange to the M80 Ring Road to improve traffic flow on and off the freeway.

Working day and night for two weeks allowed us to complete these works sooner and safer. While the interchange was closed, we:

  • built a second right turn lane from Edgars Road on to the M80 Ring Road, Greensborough-bound
  • installed new traffic signals, street lighting, underground cables and drainage
  • built new kerbs, laid asphalt and installed line marking
  • piled to create structural supports for the new overhead signage on the freeway.

In December, we also finished building the retaining wall along the Sydney Road Altona-bound exit ramp and completed works to install underground infrastructure for our smart freeway management system between Sydney Road and Mahoneys Road.

Works to install our smart freeway management system were completed three days ahead of schedule. As a result, we reopened the Western Ring Path early.

What we’re doing next

In January, we’ll continue:

  • works to build the new Blaxland Avenue overpass ramps
  • works to build the new Edgars Road on and off ramps
  • installing drainage and underground communication cables on both sides of the freeway.

We'll also commence building retaining walls along the freeway between Sydney Road and Mahoneys Road.

Most works will take place between 7am and 6pm, Monday to Saturday.

Some works will need to happen at night to minimise impacts on traffic and utility services. We’ll let you know in advance when this needs to happen.

Hume Freeway ramp closure

We previously advised that we’d be closing the Hume Freeway to the M80 Ring Road Altona-bound ramp nightly between Sunday 31 January and Thursday 4 March 2021 so that we could complete a range of works near the ramp.

These works have been rescheduled and we’ll now be closing the ramp at a later date. We’ll provide you with an update next month about the timing of these works.
