Works under way on Stage 2 of the Monash Freeway Upgrade

22 May, 2020Monash Freeway Upgrade


Major construction has started on Stage 2 of the Monash Freeway Upgrade, which will make journeys quicker, easier and safer for the 470,000 drivers using the freeway every day.

The upgrade is being delivered by CPB Contractors and will add 36kms of new lanes on the Monash and Princes Freeways, between:

  • Warrigal Road and Eastlink outbound
  • Eastlink to Springvale Road inbound
  • Clyde Road to Cardinia Road, in both directions.

We’ll also:

  • reconnect Police Road to the Monash Freeway with an outbound ramp
  • connect the Jacksons Road outbound ramp directly to Eastlink with a separate road
  • upgrade O’Shea Road to three lanes in each direction between Clyde Road and Soldiers Road and extend it to meet the Beaconsfield interchange
  • upgrade the Beaconsfield interchange by adding an inbound freeway off-ramp and on outbound freeway on-ramp
  • build a shared walking and cycling path along O’Shea Road from Clyde Road, Berwick to Prince Highway, Beaconsfield
  • install smart on-road technology between the South Gippsland Freeway and the Beaconsfield interchange. This technology allows the remote management of lanes, keeping traffic moving more efficiently, as well as providing safer and faster response to incidents.

We’ve started setting up work areas along the freeway and installing safety barriers between Eastlink and Warrigal Road.

To keep as many lanes, open as possible during construction, we’re moving existing lanes sideways and changing line marking.

There will be ongoing lane, ramp and road closures and changed traffic conditions, including speed reductions.

Construction is expected to be completed in 2022.
