CityLink Tulla Widening

The $1.3 billion CityLink Tulla Widening Project will increase capacity, reduce travel times and improve safety on CityLink and the Tullamarine Freeway.

The CityLink-Tullamarine road corridor is one of Melbourne's most heavily used, carrying approximately 210,000 vehicles per day in its busiest section.

With around 25,000 extra vehicles predicted to be using this major road network every day by 2031, the CityLink Tulla Widening Project is an important investment in Victoria's future.

  • adding an extra lane in each direction
  • upgrading the intersections at Flemington Road, Bell Street, English Street and Mickleham Road
  • creating dedicated lanes to Bell Street from the Calder and Tullamarine Freeways
  • implementing a new freeway management system to help manage congestion and incidents.

VicRoads and Lendlease are delivering the Melbourne Airport to Bulla Road section while Transurban and CPB Contractors are delivering the Bulla Road to Power Street section.

Around 1400 new jobs will be created during construction, with the project expected to be completed in 2018.
