Bolte Bridge transmission line works

There will be road closures and detours on Sunday 5 May, between 6am - 11am on CityLink, as we work on the overhead transmission lines near the Bolte Bridge. 

Location: CityLink will be closed in both directions between Footscray Road and the West Gate Freeway, including the Bolte Bridge. Detours will be in place.

Timeframe: Sunday 5 May 2024, 6:00am - 11:00am.


What are we doing?

Along with our trusted delivery partner, Zinfra Power Services, we will remove four redundant aircraft warning marker balls from the overhead transmission lines next to the Bolte Bridge.

These aircraft warning markers are now 27 years old and can pose a safety risk due to their age.

We are removing them for the ongoing safety of motorists and the community.
