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.

Hume Freeway ramp closures

We’re closing the Hume Freeway to the M80 Ring Road Altona-bound ramp each night between 10pm and 5am until Wednesday 28 April 2021.

This is so we can build foundations for overhead signage structures and install power and communications infrastructure for our smart freeway management system. We’ll also undertake barrier, drainage and bridge strengthening works.

Detours will be in place via Edgars Road and the M80 Ring Road. Refer to the detour map below.

M80 Ring Road closure

We’re closing the M80 Ring Road Altona-bound lanes between Sydney Road and Edgars Road from 10pm Sunday 18 April until 5am Monday 19 April.

During the closure, we’ll remove signage structures over the freeway so that we can build new structures and install electronic signs for the new smart freeway management system.

The Hume Freeway to M80 Ring Road Altona-bound ramp will also be closed nightly until 28 April. Detours will be in place via Mahoneys Road, Edgars Road and Cooper Street. Refer to map below for recommended detours.

Blaxland Avenue overpass

We're extending the overpass so we can add new lanes to the freeway underneath. We’re building new ramps, replacing some of the cables and painting the support towers a brand-new colour to enhance the structure and provide a visual cue for motorists travelling on the freeway.

We closed the overpass a number of times between February to April so that we could build the new ramps, extend the overpass over the freeway and paint the support towers in a colour chosen by the local community.

We’ll close the bridge again in May to complete the overpass upgrade and will provide you with more information before this happens.

M80 Trail

The M80 Trail is closed between the Blaxland Avenue overpass and the Edgars Road Greensborough-bound exit ramp until mid-2021. Signed detours are in place along Maritana Crescent and Alvarado Avenue to maintain connectivity for cyclists and pedestrians.

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.
