Victorian Freeway contracts awarded

As part of the North East Link Project, contracts have been awarded for two of the state’s biggest freeway overhauls with work set to take place on the M80 and Eastern Freeway.

The Eastern Freeway Upgrade will include more than 45 kilometres of new lanes and traffic management systems with the aim of delivering an 11 minute reduction in travel time between Springvale Rd and Hoddle St, 10 kilometres of walking and cycling paths and a rebuilt Koonung Creek Reserve.

Nexus – made up of Laing O’Rourke Australia Construction Pty Ltd, Symal Infrastructure Pty Ltd, WSP Australia Pty Ltd and Arcadis Australia Pacific Pty Ltd – has been appointed to deliver the first part of the $5.7 billion overhaul of the Eastern Freeway from Burke to Tram Road.

The M80 Ring Road Upgrade will add 15 kilometres of new lanes from Plenty Rd to the new North East Link, an upgraded interchange at Grimshaw St and new walking and cycling links.

AMA – made up of Acciona Construction Australia Pty Ltd, AECOM Australia Pty Ltd, and MACA Civil Pty Ltd – will deliver the $3.8 billion M80 Ring Road Upgrade.

Both projects are jointly funded by the Victorian and Federal government, with works expected to be completed in 2028.

RA congratulates our members on being awarded these contracts that will support increased efficiency for commuters across Melbourne’s north and east.
