Outer Metropolitan Ring/E6 Transport Corridor Project

lin g Club

Springridge Customer Referral Program

The Outer Metropolitan Ring/E6 Transport Corridor is being planned to accommodate a 100 kilometre long high-speed transport link for people and freight in Melbourne’s north and west, creating the opportunity for new road and rail transport links through the Werribee, Melton, Tullamarine, Craigieburn/Mickleham and Epping/Thomastown areas to be provided as transport demand warrants. The planning for the transport corridor provides options for an ultimate freeway standard road, capable of up to four lanes in each direction and four railway tracks in the median for interstate freight and high-speed passenger trains between Werribee and Kalkallo and capable of ultimately being a six-lane freeway standard road elsewhere. Once complete, the project will: • create better connections to key international transport hubs such as Melbourne Airport, Avalon Airport and the Port of Geelong • improve access to the proposed Donnybrook/Beveridge Interstate Rail Terminal • serve as an important travel and freight route to interstate and regional destinations • link residential and employment growth areas in the north and west of Melbourne • improve access in this major employment corridor, which includes Avalon Airport, Werribee, Melton, Melbourne Airport, Mickleham and Donnybrook This transport corridor is central to the Government’s $38 billion Victorian Transport Plan and crucial to the social and economic development of communities in these areas.
