A contract has been awarded to Seymour Whyte by Australia Pacific Airports for works on the Melbourne Airport’s Naarm Way Stage Two, which will reduce traffic congestion and enhance safety to new dedicated pick-up and drop-off zones.

Naarm Way Stage Two will provide a direct connection from the Tullamarine Freeway to new dedicated pick-up and drop-off zones in the T123 car park.

The two-stage project will create a more streamlined exit from the Tullamarine Freeway to all four terminals, meaning travellers will no longer need to navigate roundabouts or traffic lights to access the pick-up and drop-off zones and parking areas.

The project’s design focuses on separating public traffic, pedestrians, and commercial transport operators through an elevated road network. This initiative streamlines traffic flow from the Tullamarine Freeway to all airport terminals, facilitating a smoother and more accessible journey for all airport users.

As part of the project, a new pedestrian bridge will provide direct passenger access from the T123 parking structure to Terminal Two.
