Getting to and from Melbourne Airport this week
If you're heading to Melbourne Airport between Thursday 18 January and Sunday 21 January, whether by car, taxi, bus or SkyBus, please allow extra time for your journey. The Tullamarine Freeway will be closed north-bound for 58 hours between Terminal Drive Exit and Sunbury Road. The scheduled 58 hour closure time for NORTH-BOUND traffic is from 9.00pm Thursday 18th January to 6.00am Sunday 21st January.
Detours will be in place for north-bound (towards Sunbury) traffic which will divert through the Melbourne Airport precinct, causing additional congestion. Please see the map below and detour details. The closure may cause delays for your trip to and from Melbourne Airport so it's essential that you plan ahead, please check what is happening on the freeways before you travel and allow plenty of extra time to get to the airport.
There will be additional services for the Staff Car Park bus and Long Term Car Park bus to negate any issues of forecourt congestion and maintain an efficient service for our Staff and Long Term Car Park.

1. Take the Terminal Drive (Melbourne Airport) exit
2. Turn right onto Centre Road
3. Take the entry ramp onto the freeway
