Additional $75m scope for Mordialloc Bypass
People in Melbourne’s south-east will get home faster and spend less time stuck in traffic, with the construction of the Mordialloc Freeway.
The premier today announced that the Victorian Budget 2018/19 will include an additional $75 million to upgrade the Labor Government’s Mordialloc Bypass to a four-lane freeway, removing a further three sets of traffic lights from the current design.
The $375 million project will create more than 400 jobs and cut 10-minutes off a trip between the Mornington Peninsula Freeway and the Dingley Bypass.
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.
Construction will start in 2019 and be completed by the end of 2021.
