We’re building the new Mordialloc Freeway to connect the Mornington Peninsula Freeway to the Dingley Bypass.

Current works

The current stage of works includes:

  • building temporary access points so trucks can safely enter and exit the work area
  • moving existing road signs and installing new ones
  • installing temporary safety barriers
  • changing and installing fencing along roads and the work area
  • making small changes to local roads including changing line marking, closing lanes and widening roads where they intersect with our work area
  • detouring pedestrian pathways which will be impacted by our works
  • removing trees and vegetation where it is unavoidable
  • moving or protecting utilities
  • piling, where we’ll dig vertically into the ground to build the foundations for the bridges
  • installing new drainage throughout the project area
  • bringing machinery to the work site
  • bringing material to build the foundations of the Freeway
  • building a temporary haul road to take trucks off local roads
  • starting construction on the twin bridge over the Waterways wetlands
  • starting construction on the bridge retaining walls.

We’ll carry out most of these works during the day, Monday to Friday between 7am and 7pm and on Saturdays between 7am and 3.30pm. We’ll let you know in advance of work outside of these hours.

Thank you for your patience as we improve travel times and ease congestion in Melbourne’s south east.

Keeping you moving

There are a large number of trucks travelling to and from our work site each day.

We’ve developed a strategy to manage truck movements and minimise disruption to road users and the local community. This includes:

  • planning truck routes to minimise the distance they’ll travel on local roads
  • planning truck movements to minimise the impact on any one road
  • sourcing the material from multiple quarry locations across Melbourne
  • making changes to roads crossing our worksite to allow trucks to safety enter and exit the work site
  • ensuring our truck drivers are informed about speed limits
  • monitoring traffic volumes and adjusting truck routes as required
  • once at the work site, we'll use a temporary haul road to take trucks off local roads.

We may also need to reduce the speed limit or close lanes on the roads around our work area to keep you and our workers safe. We’ll keep you informed of changes to traffic conditions through road signs.

There may be minor traffic delays, so please allow extra travel time for your journey.
