McConnell Dowell/Decmil Joint Venture is the preferred tenderer for the Mordialloc Freeway project.
The Joint Venture will ensure feedback received from the Environment Effects Statement (EES) consultation period can be considered during the design refinement process.
Further environmental surveying and monitoring, along with non-disruptive site and services investigations will be undertaken. It will build on the 13 key environmental studies already completed, to ensure the final design aligns with outcomes of the EES process and that the project is built in an environmentally sustainable way.
The 9km freeway will provide an uninterrupted journey from the Mornington Peninsula Freeway in Aspendale Gardens to the Dingley Bypass in Dingley Village.
Construction is due to begin in late 2019 and finish by the end of 2021.
