WORK ON WIDENING THE EJ WHITTEN BRIDGE HAS COMMENCED

Work has commenced on strengthening and widening the EJ Whitten bridge. The upgrade will create more traffic lanes and fix the notorious traffic deadlock that exists on the M80 between Keilor Park Drive and Furlong Road.

The upgrade includes new public safety barriers – which the community has long been campaigning for.

Unlike the previous State Liberal Government, who refused to fix the notorious traffic deadlock in 2013, the Andrews Labor Government is delivering on its infrastructure commitments for the West.
