Freedom of Information

The Victorian Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) gives you the right to apply for access to documents held by government.

Under the FOI Act, you can also ask the West Gate Tunnel Project, as part of the Major Transport Infrastructure Authority (WGTP, MTIA) to correct or amend inaccurate, incomplete, out of date or misleading information it holds about you.

Making a Freedom of Information request

To lodge an FOI request with WGTP, MTIA, please direct your request to:

  • Email: WDA-FOI@wgta.vic.gov.au (preferred); or
  • Mail: Freedom of Information Officer
    West Gate Tunnel Project, Major Transport Infrastructure Authority
    GPO Box 4509
    Melbourne VIC 3001

To lodge a valid FOI request you must provide WGTP, MTIA with:

  • a written request specifying which documents you seek access to; and
  • an application fee of $28.90 (as of 1 July 2018) or evidence that the application fee would cause you financial hardship (such as a copy of your health care card).

If you are seeking access to documents containing personal affairs information held by WGTP, MTIA about yourself or someone else, please also provide:

  • photo ID (if you are seeking access to documents containing information about you); and
  • proof of relationship (if you are seeking access to documents containing information about someone else).

You can also make an FOI request online using the Department of Justice Freedom of Information portal. You will need a credit card to complete this application online. Please note that if you apply through the portal your request will not be received by WGTP, MTIA immediately, as the Department of Justice will need to redirect it to WGTP, MTIA.

Please call 1800 105 105 should you have any general FOI enquiries regarding the West Gate Tunnel Project.
