About Victoria's toll roads

Find out more about CityLink and EastLink, including how to identify them when travelling and planning your journey.

There are two toll roads in Victoria - CityLink and EastLink. These are both operated by private companies Linkt and ConnectEast, respectively.

What are toll roads and where are they?

Toll roads are roads where you have to pay a fee to travel on them. There are two toll roads in Victoria:

  • CityLink, which  connects the Tullamarine Freeway, West Gate Freeway and Monash Freeway; and
  • EastLink, which connects the Eastern Freeway, Monash Freeway, Frankston Freeway and Peninsula Link Freeway.

Victoria’s toll roads are operated by private companies through a partnership arrangement between the Victorian government and the private sector. This partnership required the private sector companies to design, build, finance and maintain these toll roads. To compensate for their costs and risk, they are allowed to charge tolls at specified levels.
