Brimbank City Council nominates multiple projects to improve the safety and amenity of drivers using the Calder Freeway and particularly the intersection with Calder Park Drive:

• Upgrading the Calder Freeway between the Western Ring Road (M80) and the Melton Highway to bring it up to freeway
standard by adding lanes from Keilor Park Drive to Melton Highway and widening the Maribyrnong River Bridge ($1b).
• Construction of a full diamond interchange at the intersection of the Calder Freeway and Calder Park Drive. The funding level required will depend on the findings of the related business case by the Victorian Government.
