Work well underway on new Mordialloc Freeway

14 October, 2019Mordialloc Freeway


Works to build the new Mordialloc Freeway have started.

The 9km Mordialloc Freeway will link the Mornington Peninsula Freeway at Springvale Road in Aspendale Gardens to the Dingley Bypass in Dingley Village, creating a continuous freeway from Frankston to Clayton.

We’ll also upgrade the existing interchange at Thames Promenade, Chelsea, with the Mornington Peninsula Freeway, along with freeway entry and exit ramps. We’ll also build a walking and cycling path along the entire freeway.

All necessary planning and environment approvals are now in place and the contract has been awarded to the McConnell Dowell and Decmil Joint Venture.

The project will take two years to complete and will ease congestion and make local roads safer.

We’re committed to ensuring that the final project design delivers the best outcome for you and the environment.  In response to community feedback, we’ve made changes to the design to include:

  • bridges over Governor Road, Lower Dandenong Road and Centre Dandenong Road instead of traffic lights
  • a bridge over Old Dandenong Road to keep it open for Dingley Village residents
  • a twin bridge over the sensitive wetlands to ensure rainfall and natural light reaches the vegetation below
  • longer and taller fences next to Braeside Park to protect local wildlife
  • a wider pedestrian underpass at Braeside Park to improve connectivity
  • a new intersection at Lower Dandenong Road so Woodlands Drive can remain open.

We’ll continue to finalise the project design in the coming months.
