EastLink is one of the safest motorways in Melbourne.
EastLink control room operators provide 24/7 monitoring with video cameras, traffic counters, vehicle height and tunnel fire detectors.
Incident response vehicles operate 24/7. If you breakdown on EastLink, stay in your vehicle. An incident response vehicle will assist you within minutes.
If you need to use a help phone, park in the emergency lane provided, use your hazard lights, and keep well away from the main carriageway. NEVER CROSS A MOTORWAY.
