Quarterly tunnel maintenance schedule (2021)

The EastLink tunnels are closed quarterly for routine scheduled maintenance works. These works are essential to maintain the high safety standard of EastLink.

The following quarterly closures are scheduled:

  • Overnight Saturday 20 February 2021 from 8pm to 7am
  • Overnight Saturday 22 May 2021 from 8pm to 7am
  • Overnight Saturday 14 August 2021 from 8pm to 7am
  • Overnight Saturday 20 November 2021 from 8pm to 7am

During each of these closures, EastLink (including the Melba and Mullum Mullum tunnels) will be closed in both directions between Springvale Rd and Canterbury Rd.

Ringwood Bypass will also be closed in both directions between Ringwood St and Maroondah Hwy.

Occasionally, it may be necessary to close the EastLink tunnels on other dates to conduct any works that are not part of the quarterly schedule.
