Delays And Headaches Expected As Major Freeway Works Begin
Melbourne motorist will be plagued by major delays along Kings Way and the West Gate Freeway as new roadworks begin.
Drivers will lose a lane along a section of the outbound Kings Way entry ramp, as part of the latest works in the CityLink Tulla Widening Project.
Vic Roads is warning drivers that delays will be at least 10 minutes, with increases during morning peak.
Tow trucks have been put on standby, just in case there are any crashes, so vehicles can be moved quickly.
The $1.3 billion upgrade of the Tullamarine Freeway and CityLink will add 33km of new lanes and cut travel times to the airport by up to 20 minutes.
