Eastern Freeway (Melbourne) - Extension Plans

Extension Plans

There has been widespread speculation that a tunnel linking Hoddle Street to CityLink and the Western Ring Road could potentially be built at some future date. The Eastern Freeway has no connecting freeways at the city end and traffic from the Eastern Freeway is released westward along Alexandra Parade and north-south along Hoddle Street.

On 1 March 2007, the Labor Government announced a study linking the major freeways, headed by international transport expert Sir Rod Eddington. The Eddington Transport Report received much criticism for its lack of information regarding mass transit infrastructure. The Labor government said it will eventually be built, but in stages. There has been no confirmation on the building of the road except a part of the western section.

Famous quotes containing the words plans and/or extension:

    When I heard at the close of the day how my name had been receiv’d
    with plaudits in the capitol, still it was not a happy night for me
    that follow’d,
    And else when I carous’d, or when my plans were accomplish’d,
    still I was not happy,
    But the day when I rose at dawn from the bed of perfect health,
    refresh’d, singing, inhaling the ripe breath of autumn,
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    Slavery is founded in the selfishness of man’s nature—opposition to it, is [in?] his love of justice.... Repeal the Missouri compromise—repeal all compromises—repeal the declaration of independence—repeal all past history, you still can not repeal human nature. It still will be the abundance of man’s heart, that slavery extension is wrong; and out of the abundance of his heart, his mouth will continue to speak.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)
