Major construction on stage two of the $1.4 billion Monash Freeway Upgrade begins next month and will improve trips for almost half a million daily motorists in Melbourne’s south-east.

The Monash Freeway upgrade will slash almost 10 minutes off a morning peak hour trip between Pakenham and the city.

The freeway will be expanded from eight to ten lanes between Springvale Road and EastLink, and from four to six lanes between Clyde Road and Cardinia Road.

Better connections will be created at Beaconsfield, and link to an upgraded and extended O’Shea Road that will feature two extra lanes in each direction.

The upgrade will also create a new outbound entry to the Monash Freeway at Police Road and a modified outbound Jacksons Road entry to EastLink, making it easier and safer to access the Monash and EastLink.

The Monash Freeway Upgrade is expected to be complete in 2022.
