This will give drivers access to new lanes from Friday morning and throughout the weekend.

While there is some relief for frustrated drivers, major disruptions will continue for motorists over the next few months for resurfacing works. However, this will mostly be done at night.

The works to add 36km of new lanes to the Monash and Princes Freeways are expected to be completed by the middle of 2022.

Glenroy disruptions

The Glenroy level crossing boom gates were removed on Monday night but the road is still weeks away from being reopened.

About 19,000 drivers a day usually use Glenroy Rd, which will remain completely closed to motorists until Saturday May 14.

There will be a new Glenroy Station, with trains stopping there from 9pm on May 6. Buses will replace trains until then.

Dowd Place, on the western side of the rail line, will remain closed until mid-September.
