We need to close and safely remove the existing pedestrian overpasses that connect Muir Street and Fogarty Avenue and Rosala Avenue and Richards Court to make way for widening the West Gate Freeway.

This is because the next stage of the freeway widening involves moving traffic to the outer lanes where the ramps of the existing overpasses are located.

The new pedestrian bridges will be installed later this year.

While there are no pedestrian bridges, a shuttle bus will be available for the community.

Walking and cycling detour, bus timetable and routes

We are running a courtesy shuttle bus for pedestrians to cross between the north and south sides of the West Gate Freeway.

The shuttle bus service will be free for users.

We have enhanced safety processes in place to protect passengers against the spread of coronavirus. These include extra cleaning, closing some seats to allow for physical distancing and providing hand sanitiser.

Please remember social distancing measures in line with current health advice when using the shuttle buses.

If you require special assistance during this time, please contact us on 1800 105 105.
