MORDIALLOC FREEWAY TO EASE CONGESTION ON LOCAL ROADS

The Andrews Labor Government’s new Mordialloc Freeway will take pressure off key arterial roads throughout the south east, helping to ease congestion on local roads.

The Victorian Budget 2018/19 will include $75 million to upgrade the Andrews Labor Government’s Mordialloc Bypass to a four-lane freeway.

Originally proposed as a new four-lane arterial road, the Labor Government has listened to community feedback and upgraded the project to freeway standard, reducing delays and ensuring more reliable travel times.

Building the road to a freeway standard will also take tens of thousands of vehicles off busy local roads – easing congestion on roads like the Nepean Highway, Boundary Road, Wells Road, Westall Road and Springvale Road.

The new freeway will also provide a purpose built, highly efficient route through the south east for heavy vehicles, reducing the need for trucks to use residential streets.

The freeway will connect 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.

The new freeway will have entry and exit ramp interchanges at Springvale Road, Governor Road, Lower Dandenong Road and Centre Dandenong Road.

A new interchange will also be built at Thames Promenade, making it easier for drivers to access the new freeway.

Locals have made it clear they want a freeway to improve east-west and north-south connections, reduce delays and provide more reliable travel times – the Andrews Labor Government is getting it done.

Construction will start in 2019 and be completed by the end of 2021.
