Burnley Tunnel
Improvements have been made to a busy merge in one of the CityLink tunnels to help keep traffic moving.

The changes have been implemented on the Kings Way entry ramp where traffic merges into the Burnley Tunnel.

CityLink’s Head of Assets for Victoria, Phil Naulls, said the project included design changes to better accommodate the merge of the Kings Way entry ramp and allow three lanes to operate on the West Gate Freeway and in the tunnel at all times at 80km/h. 

“This makes the speed limit more consistent for drivers and allows us to run three lanes at 80km/h at all times, meaning a much smoother and safer run for everyone”, Mr Naulls said.

Mr Naulls said the reconfiguration improvements were designed and reviewed by safety experts.
