Construction of 14 km of new lanes, 10 km of new pedestrian lanes and 8 bridges

ACCIONA, in consortium with its partners MACA and AECOM, will construct the completion of the M80 Australian Ring Road between Plenty Road and the Northeast Link in Watsonia (Melbourne).

The construction of the AU$3.8 billion (€2.33 billion) M80 Ring Road project will incorporate the addition of 14 km of new lanes, 10 km of new and improved pedestrian and cycle lanes, 8 bridges, underpasses, new crossings, improved retaining walls, and urban design and landscaping works. These works will facilitate the removal of 19,000 vehicles per day from suburban roads every day.


The project includes 14 kilometres of new lanes, retaining walls and urban design and landscaping works, as well as improved walking and cycling connections, and will involve the movement of almost two million cubic metres of earth, plus the planting of 4,000 trees. These initiatives not only seek to strengthen road infrastructure, but also to improve the urban environment and environmental sustainability of the region.
