Constituency Question – CityLink Tullamarine Widening Project

Mr CARROLL (Niddrie) — (Question 7029) My question is to the Minister for Roads and Road Safety, and I ask: how will the most recent works on the CityLink Tullamarine widening project affect commuters in my electorate, and what measures should they take to avoid delays?

Last week construction started on an extra lane off the Bolte Bridge and along the West Gate Freeway through to the Burnley Tunnel. The construction of these extra lanes is an important part of the CityLink Tullamarine widening project and is scheduled to take 18 months. It is great to see that the Andrews Labor government is making progress on this important project which will deliver relief from traffic congestion for so many road users in my electorate. Importantly VicRoads and Transurban are using modem technology to help commuters by tracking journey times and providing alerts. I ask: what additional measures can be taken by my constituents to avoid delays?
