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

Current traffic impacts

Traffic changes

There’ll be ongoing lane, ramp and freeway closures and reduced speed limits between Sydney Road and Edgars Road until early 2023. 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.

Keep up to date with these disruptions by subscribing for email updates at the bottom of this page.

We’ve built dedicated access tracks to deliver and remove materials from our work sites. We'll remove the access tracks and temporary work sites when the project is complete.

M80 Ring Road closure

The M80 Ring Road will be closed overnight in both directions between the Hume Freeway and Edgars Road from 9pm, Sunday 1 August to 5am, Monday 2 August (previously 10pm, Saturday 31 July to 8am, Sunday 1 August).

During this time, we’ll install signage gantry structures over the freeway. Detours will be in place via the Hume Freeway, Mahoneys Road and Edgars Road. Refer to the map for recommended detour routes.

Sydney Road exit ramp closures

We’ll be closing the Sydney Road Altona-bound exit ramp for a full weekend so that we can install drainage and barriers near the Kathryn Street cycling and pedestrian overpass.

The ramp will be closed from 9pm, Friday 6 August to 5am, Monday 9 August.

Detours will be in place via Edgars Road, Mahoneys Road, Cooper Street and the Hume Highway. Refer to the map below for recommended detour routes.

Managing traffic impacts

We're committed to keeping you moving during construction.

Most works will take place Monday to Saturday between 7am to 6pm, however we’ll need to do some works at night to minimise impacts on traffic and utility services.

We'll use our temporary work sites and compound as site offices and laydown areas for trucks and machinery. Our construction vehicles and machinery will also use access tracks to enter and exit our work sites along the freeway. We'll generally use the sites and access tracks from 7am to 6pm, Monday to Saturday, however our workers will have access 24 hours a day, seven days a week as required.

At times, our construction activities may generate;

  • medium to high levels of noise
  • dust and vibration.

We’re monitoring these impacts to ensure they’re kept to a minimum. There should be no impact to your power supply during the works, however your utility service provider will let you know in advance if this is likely to change.
