New changes to the West Gate Freeway caused traffic confusion for peak-hour drivers this morning.
The eastbound ramps from the Bolte Bridge and over Montague Street were opened as part of the $1.39 billion M1 upgrade.
The changes have confused drivers with callers to 3AW this morning saying signs weren't clear enough and there were a lot people changing lanes.
"Observing traffic this morning ... the biggest change for people, is to understand that they need to go past the Kings Way exit to get to the new Montague Street (exit)," John Cunningham, project director of the M1 upgrade told Radio 3AW.
The upgrade aims to reduce drivers weaving and merging on the freeway with work expected to go on until mid-2010.
Mary-Anne Lane, spokeswoman for VicRoads, said the changes would take some getting used to.
"People coming from the West Gate Bridge can no longer exit the freeway at Lorimer Street and that did cause some confusion this morning," she said.
"We are changing behaviour that has been embedded for years, there are some major changes out there, so really the key message is for people to look at the signs and choose their lane early."
