Monash Freeway transformation moves another step closer

15 June, 2018Monash Freeway Upgrade


Expressions of interest are now underway to build the $711 million second stage of the Monash Freeway Upgrade.

An additional 36km of new lanes will be added to help reduce travel times for the 470,000 daily trips on the corridor.

The freeway will be widened between Warrigal Road and EastLink and between Clyde Road and Cardinia Road.

The new lanes are expected to reduce travel times by nine minutes during peak hour between Pakenham and the city.

Stage 1 of the Monash Freeway Upgrade between EastLink and Clyde Road is nearing completion. New lanes opened in early May and new overhead freeway technology was installed in early June.

The Australian Government is contributing $500 million to Stage 2 of the Monash Freeway Upgrade, with the Victorian Government contributing the remainder.

Major construction on Stage 2 is scheduled to start in mid-2019 and is expected to be completed in early 2022.
