Building the massive West Gate Tunnel Project will cause some unavoidable transport disruption for several years. Drivers are reminded to be alert and aware of changed traffic conditions.

The project work sites are located along the West Gate Freeway and near other major roads in the west and the city.

To help plan your journey, upcoming and ongoing closures and disruptions are listed below.

Please note, at peak hours all lanes will remain open on the West Gate Freeway, Footscray Road, Williamstown Road and other key roads.

What's happening and where

Timing Location Impacts Detour
Ongoing West Gate Freeway near Williamstown Road Changed conditions on West Gate Freeway. Traffic barriers will be set up so crews can work safely and speed limits will be reduced from 100 km/h to 80 km/h near work zones.


This is so that we can start widening the West Gate Freeway. Widening works will gradually move west towards the M80 Ring Road between 2018 and 2022.
