We’re improving road safety and traffic flow in Bacchus Marsh with two major upgrades
The Monash Freeway Upgrade will provide a massive boost to Melbourne’s south east by easing traffic congestion and improving road safety.
Stage 1 of the Monash Freeway Upgrade started in September 2016 and was completed in June 2018.
More than 30 km of extra traffic lanes were added. The freeway was also widened:
- from 4 to 5 lanes in each direction, between EastLink interchange and South Gippsland Freeway
- from 2 to 3 lanes in each direction, between South Gippsland Freeway and Clyde Road in Berwick.
Stage 2 of the Monash Freeway Upgrade will include:
- adding 36 km of new lanes on the Monash and Princes Freeways, between:
- Warrigal Road and Eastlink outbound
- Eastlink to Springvale Road inbound
- Clyde Road to Cardinia Road, in both directions
- connecting Police Road to the freeway with an outbound on-ramp
- connecting the Jacksons Road outbound ramps directly to Eastlink with a separate road
- installing smart, on-road technology across the project, including extending the lane-use management system from the South Gippsland Freeway to Beaconsfield interchange
- upgrading O’Shea Road to three lanes in each direction between Clyde Road and Soldiers Road
- extending O’Shea Road to join the Beaconsfield interchange – we’ll also upgrade the interchange by adding an inbound freeway off-ramp and an outbound freeway on-ramp
- building a shared walking and cycling path along O’Shea Road between Clyde Road, Berwick and the Princes Highway, Beaconsfield.
Stage 2 began in early 2020 and is scheduled to be completed in 2022.
Stage 1 of the Monash Freeway Upgrade is now complete.
The Monash Freeway Upgrade is being delivered by Major Road Projects Victoria. Visit the project website for more information.
