Construction to start on the West Gate Tunnel Project in January

The Victorian Government has signed an agreement with Transurban, and a joint venture of CPB Contractors and John Holland, to deliver and operate the West Gate Tunnel Project.

The West Gate Tunnel Project Authority reports that the project will deliver over 14 km of new and upgraded walking and cycling paths:

  • a completed Federation Trail and missing links in the Kororoit Creek Trail
  • a new 2.5 km elevated veloway which will give cyclists a safe and express route to and from the city
  • connecting Spotswood and Yarraville with a new pedestrian and cycling path from Hyde Street Reserve to Spotswood Station
  • a new connection along Hyde Street and Harris Street in Yarraville which will redirect cyclists from the dangerous intersection of Somerville Road and Whitehall Street
  • a new cycling and pedestrian bridge connecting Yarraville Gardens and the Maribyrnong River
  • new, safer cycling and pedestrian bridge across Moonee Ponds Creek at Dynon Road
  • a new bridge crossing over Footscray Road at Moonee Ponds Creek Trail, avoiding the busy signalised intersection.
