CityLink tunnels and West Gate Bridge
Various dates from Friday 27 December 2013
Until Tuesday 7 January 2014
The Burnley & Domain tunnels and West Gate Bridge will be closed for resurfacing works, to be undertaken by CityLink and VicRoads.
The works involve resurfacing all lanes in both tunnels and four lanes of the West Gate Bridge. Signed detour routes will be in place.
Traffic delays are expected on and around the detour routes.
Please plan ahead and allow extra time for your journey.
Full details are on the CityLink website and in the video (right).
EastLink roadworks at Princes Hwy
Until further notice
We are undertaking a program of roadworks on EastLink at the Princes Hwy interchange to improve the ride quality of EastLink at this location.
Reduced speed limits (80km/h) and temporary safety barriers are in place on EastLink at the Princes Hwy interchange to allow the roadworks to take place. EastLink will remain open at this location during the roadworks.
The rest of EastLink is unaffected by these roadworks.
ConnectEast apologises for any inconvenience and urges motorists to observe posted speed restriction signs at all times for the safety of workers and drivers.
