CPBJH JV - West Gate Tunnel Project

The West Gate Tunnel Project will deliver a vital alternative to the West Gate Bridge, providing a much needed second river crossing facilitating quicker and safer journeys.  It will provide an alternative route from the West Gate Freeway to the CBD and will slash congestion and travel times.

The West Gate Tunnel Project is a partnership between the Victorian Government and Transurban and will be built by construction contractors CPB Contractors and John Holland (CPBJH JV).

Construction is underway and the West Gate Tunnel project will be built over five years from 2018 until 2022. 

The West Gate Tunnel Project will:

  • Give people a choice – the tunnel or the bridge.
  • Extend Wurundjeri Way to provide a city bypass.
  • Remove over 9,000 trucks from local streets and enable 24 hour truck bans in six local roads.
  • Create 6,000 jobs.
  • Construct new twin tunnels under Yarraville.
  • Build a bridge over the Maribyrnong River providing a second river crossing that joins an elevated road along Footscray Road.
  • Provide 9 hectares of new public open space including parkland and wetlands.
  • Widen the West Gate Freeway from 8 to 12 lanes.
  • Build more than 9 kilometres of new and improved noise walls along the West Gate Freeway, making it quieter at houses, parks and sport fields.
  • Complete the missing link in the Federation Trail. 
  • Upgrade major cycling and walking paths including the Kororoit Creek and provide safer off-road cycling paths. 

The Victorian Government is committed to maximising the job and economic benefits generated by the project for local businesses.
