The Victorian Government is partnering with Transurban to build the $5.5 billion Western Distributor Project, including the Monash Freeway Upgrade, Webb Dock access improvements, and vital second river crossing.
The Western Distributor Project will create 5,600 new jobs, provide a much-needed alternative to the West Gate Bridge, remove thousands of trucks from local streets, and deliver an $11 billion boost to Victoria's economy.
Visit the Western Distributor Project website for the latest project updates, upcoming opportunities to get involved and have your say, and detailed information on all aspects of the project.
The Victorian Government received a market-led proposal for the Western Distributor from Transurban, operator of CityLink, in March 2015.
The Government has assessed the proposal and prepared a business case which found the project will deliver value-for-money and an $11 billion boost to Victoria's economy. The conservative benefit cost ratio of 1.3 means the Western Distributor will provide $1.30 in benefits for every $1 in costs.
The Western Distributor business case is available on the Western Distributor publications page.
