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 the new shared walking and cycling path and temporarily closing or detouring pedestrian paths affected by our works

  • finishing the new entry and exit ramps at Thames Promenade
  • installing the permanent safety barriers on the Freeway
  • installing new directional signs on existing roads for the Freeway
  • finishing landscaping along the Freeway

  • making small changes to local roads, including:
    • changing line marking
    • closing lanes

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