Contracts have been awarded for major overhaul works on the M80 and Eastern Freeway, as part of Victoria’s North East Link Project. 

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

Nexus – made up of Laing O’Rourke Australia Construction, Symal Infrastructure, WSP Australia and Arcadis Australia Pacific – 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 15km 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, AECOM Australia, and MACA Civil – will deliver the $3.8 billion M80 Ring Road Upgrade.

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

Roads Australia congratulated its members on being awarded these contracts that will support increased efficiency for commuters across Melbourne’s north and east.
