One of Victoria’s largest ever urban road projects

CPB Contractors is working with Transurban to deliver Victoria’s multi-billion dollar West Gate Tunnel Project.

The West Gate Tunnel project will deliver a vital alternative to the West Gate Bridge, provide quicker and safer journeys, and remove thousands of trucks from residential streets.

Our team is focused on ensuring opportunities for local workers and businesses, providing a strategic and socially-inclusive procurement program, and value for money urban designs that deliver enhanced benefits to communities and stakeholders.

The West Gate Tunnel Project will address a number of critical challenges in relation to traffic, growth and liveability across Melbourne.

CPB Contractors is delivering this project in a 50:50 joint venture with John Holland

Design and construction works include:

  • Widening the West Gate Freeway from eight lanes to 12 between the M80 Ring Road and Williamstown Road;
  • A 2.8km eastbound tunnel and 4km westbound tunnel under Yarraville;
  • A new bridge over the Maribyrnong River providing an alternative to the West Gate Bridge; and
  • An elevated road along Footscray Road to the Port of Melbourne, CityLink and the city’s north, and major new cycling and pedestrian paths.

Construction commenced in 2018 with the project scheduled to open to traffic in 2022.
