Domain tunnel and West Gate Bridge closures
Melbourne is bracing itself for traffic chaos this weekend as the Domain tunnel closes for maintenance for the first time in more than 12 years.
The three-day closure begins at 10pm today and will re-open 5am on New Years Eve.
Citylink spokesperson Graham Widger says there will be other options for motorists travelling through the city, but there will be huge delays.
“We believe this is the best time to do road works, reason being volumes are down 30 per cent to 50 per cent. Having said that, we do expect long delays and we do expect people to be inconvenienced."
The West Gate Bridge inbound will also be closed overnight on December 27 and 28.
The closures are part of a two-stage maintenance program which will see important resurfacing works undertaken across Melbourne’s major tunnels and roads.
Stage two of the closures will see the Burnley Tunnel closed from 10pm on January 2 until 5am on January 7 and the West Gate Bridge outbound shut overnight on January 2 and 3.
Melbourne’s Burnley and Domain tunnels and the West Gate Bridge are closing for essential resurfacing works.
Domain Tunnel – closed 10pm 27 December until 5am 31 December.
West Gate Bridge (inbound) – closed overnight from 11pm – 7am on 27 and 28 December.
Burnley Tunnel – closed 10pm 2 January until 5am 7 January.
West Gate Bridge (outbound) – closed overnight from 11pm – 7am on 2 and 3 January.
