T4 Express Link Major Development Plan

The Federal Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development has approved the Major Development Plan for the T4 Express Elevated Road.

Construction is due to start by the end of this year and is expected to be completed within the next 18 months.

The T4 Express Elevated Road is the first stage of a two-stage project which will address growing traffic congestion.

The elevated road network will separate public traffic from commercial transport operators.

The project will create a more streamlined exit from the Tullamarine Freeway catering mostly to T4 domestic travellers who will no longer need to navigate around a number of roundabouts and busy intersections to make their way to the pick-up, drop-off and parking facilities.

The T4 Express Link works will largely be constructed away from the Tullamarine Freeway to reduce impacts on the travelling public. Some minor disruption is expected within the Long Term Car Park during construction, and critical works such as the lifting of concrete bridge beams will be undertaken overnight to further minimise impacts on motorists and airport passengers.

The project will assist in boosting the capacity of the existing road system, as travel demands at Melbourne Airport are expected to increase significantly in the future.

The project is part of a long term initiative to more effectively distribute traffic at Melbourne Airport.
