Flyover ramp on M80 opens today


Victoria says $2.25 billion road project will improve safety and traffic flow

February 19, 2013

The new flyover ramp on the M80 Ring Road and Tullamarine Freeway in Victoria will open today.

The $2.25 billion project, which is jointly funded by the Victorian and federal governments, is a gateway to Melbourne and is expected to improve safety and traffic flow.

Trips will also be smoother following the recent opening of an underpass exit to Pascoe Vale Road and the reopening of the third lane through Jacana Underpass, Victorian Transport Minister Terry Mulder says.

"Together we are upgrading the M80 into a modern piece of road infrastructure able to support Melbourne’s continued growth and development in the decades ahead," Mulder says.

"The flyover will improve safety and traffic flow as vehicles enter the M80 Ring Road Altona bound on an additional lane, which reduces the amount of merging and weaving.

"We know drivers will find the flyover helps traffic flow in this area but we also ask that people be patient while becoming familiar with the new changes."
