Victorian Minister for Roads and Ports Tim Pallas has unveiled a $5 million study in an attempt to fix one of Melbourne’s most notorious traffic hotspots.

Hoddle Street is a corridor between the Eastern freeway and City Link, and is infamously clogged with traffic most of the day.

Detailed transport surveying will start next week with Austraffic conducting the surveys from Monday, March 15.

Pallas says confirming "the role Hoddle Street [plays] within the context of the wider transport" through the study will assist further infrastructure planning and upgrades.

The Hoddle Street study is a part of the Brumby Labor Government’s $38 billion Victorian Transport Plan.

"VicRoads will be working closely with local councils and other community representatives to ensure that local residents, business owners and transport users are appropriately consulted," Pallas says.
