Major disruptions in summer

Victoria’s Big Build will ramp up over the summer months as work is carried out on some of the biggest transport projects in Victoria’s history, with works from December through to February.

We're building big this summer

Major works on the Metro Tunnel, the West Gate Tunnel, level crossing removals, the Western Roads Upgrade, and other transport projects will continue across the transport network this Summer.

As we bring the pieces together, there’ll be disruptions to the public transport and road network.

The majority of works have been timed to coincide with the quieter summer holiday period to minimise disruption to passengers.

We encourage you to plan ahead and allow extra travel time.
