During each of these closures, EastLink (including the Melba and Mullum Mullum tunnels) will be closed in both directions between Springvale Rd and Canterbury Rd.

Occasionally, it may be necessary to close the EastLink tunnels on other dates to conduct any works that are not part of the quarterly schedule.
