The M80 Ring Road upgrade will deliver improvements along 38 kilometres of freeway from the Princes Freeway, Laverton North, to the Greensborough Highway, Greensborough.

The M80 Ring Road is an urban freeway in Melbourne. It connects the northern suburbs and western suburbs to other Victorian urban and rural freeways.

Infrastructure Australia lists the upgrade as a near term (0-5 years) High Priority Project in its Infrastructure Priority List.

The upgrade is being undertaken in a number of stages, the remaining three sections being:

- Princes Freeway to Western Highway ($345.1 million);
- Sydney Road to Edgars Road ($233.7 million); and
- Plenty Road to Greensborough Highway ($134.8 million).

An electronic freeway management system will also be installed featuring overhead electronic signs which will provide real time information for drivers and help manage traffic flow.

Construction of the Northern sections, Sydney Road to Edgars Road and Plenty Road to Greensborough Highway, is expected to start in early 2019 and completed in late 2021.

Sections of work already completed or under construction include:

- Western Highway to Sunshine Avenue (completed);
- Sunshine Avenue to Calder Freeway (under construction);
- Calder Freeway to Sydney Road (completed); and
- Edgars Road to Plenty Road (completed).

Sunshine Avenue to Calder Freeway
The Sunshine Avenue to Calder Freeway stage of the M80 Ring Road project currently underway will deliver:

- up to five lanes in both directions on the M80 Ring Road between Sunshine Avenue and Calder Freeway
- widening and strengthening of EJ Whitten Bridge
- an upgraded shared user path on the EJ Whitten Bridge;
- public safety barriers on EJ Whitten Bridge;
- electronic freeway management system; and
- new CCTV cameras to assist with managing and clearing incidents quickly and efficiently.

The Sunshine Avenue to Calder Freeway stage will cost $300 million and is jointly-funded by the Victorian and Federal governments.

Construction started in late 2016 and is expected to be completed by late 2018. Fulton Hogan was announced as the successful tenderer for the project in August 2016.

PROCUREMENT APPROACH: Traditional procurement
TYPE: Greenfield

The M80 Ring Road upgrade will deliver improvements along 38 kilometres of freeway from the Princes Freeway, Laverton North, to the Greensborough Highway, Greensborough.

The final upgrades to the M80 are a four-kilometre section between Sydney Road and Edgars Road and a two kilometre section between Plenty Road and the Greensborough Highway. Works will comprise:

  • Adding additional lanes in each direction
  • Widening and lengthening entry and exit ramps between Sydney Road and Edgars Road, and
  • Construction of new separate carriageways to remove weaving between Sydney Road and Edgars Road.

 

An electronic freeway management system will also be installed featuring overhead electronic signs which will provide real time information for drivers and help manage traffic flow.

In January 2018, Expressions of Interest (EOI) opened for both sections, however, in September 2018 the Major Roads Project Authority (MRPA) re-issued an EOI for both sections as a single design and construct contract. EOIs are due 25 October.

Construction on the Northern Sections is expected to start in early 2019 and be completed in early 2023.
