This assessment brief outlines the Victorian Government's proposal to widen and introduce managed motorways on the M2 road corridor from Melbourne Airport through to the M1. The project will improve travel time and reliability to Melbourne Airport and the North and North Western industrial, residential and employment precincts; maximise throughput of people and goods in the relevant corridors; and improve the resilience of transport connections to Melbourne Airport and the Port of Melbourne. The Victorian Government is seeking $250 million in Commonwealth funding for the project.
The Office of the Infrastructure Coordinator recommended that the project be included on the Infrastructure Priority List at Threshold.
