$5bil freeway planned for Melbourne

Posted on 1/09/2009  

A $5 billion freeway is being planned to link Melbourne’s ports with the Western Ring Road. WestLink would include a $2.8 billion tunnel under Footscray in its first stage, according to The Age. Tenders closed late in August for a $4 million contract to design the freeway. No funding is yet in place, but the State Government says it hopes to begin building the road in 2013.
