O’Shea Road Upgrade design updated

2 March, 2021Monash Freeway Upgrade


Plans for the O’Shea Road upgrade have been updated, paving the way for reduced congestion and easier access to the Princes Freeway.

The O’Shea Road Upgrade is part of the overall $1.08 billion investment made by the Victorian and Australian governments into Stages 1 and 2 of the Monash Freeway Upgrade.

The City of Casey is one of Australia’s fastest growing municipalities. On a typical weekday, close to 50,000 vehicles use O’Shea, Clyde and Greaves roads in Berwick, and numbers are expected to increase. To keep the City of Casey moving, we’re upgrading O’Shea Road to reduce congestion and travel times and support the development and growth of this booming area.

O’Shea Road will feature three lanes in each direction between Clyde Road and Soldiers Road and will be extended to join an upgraded Beaconsfield interchange, where we’ll add an inbound freeway off-ramp and an outbound freeway on-ramp to create a full diamond interchange.

We'll also:

  • upgrade the intersections of Skyline Way, Bridgewater Boulevard and Soldiers Road to traffic lights with pedestrian and cyclist crossing points
  • upgrade the intersection at Clyde Road with additional turning lanes
  • install safety barriers along the length of the upgraded road
  • plant approximately 43,000 new trees, plants and shrubs.

We’ll also upgrade and extend walking and cycling paths between Greaves Road and the Princes Highway, including a pedestrian bridge over the Pakenham railway line, making it easier and safer to walk around the local area.

Major construction is underway and the project is expected to be completed in 2022.
