We're building big this summer

21 November 2019

Major works on the Metro Tunnel, the West Gate Tunnel, level crossing removals, the Western Roads Upgrade, and other transport projects will continue across the transport network this Summer.

As we bring the pieces together, there’ll be disruptions to the public transport and road network.

The majority of works have been timed to coincide with the quieter summer holiday period to minimise disruption. 

You're encouraged to plan ahead and allow extra travel time.
