Project Description

Stage 1 provided an additional lane in each direction from EastLink to Clyde Road, upgraded ramp signals and an upgraded freeway management system from Warrigal Road to South Gippsland Freeway.

Stage 2 will provide a total of 36km of additional lanes by widening the Monash Freeway between the EastLink interchange and Warrigal Road, and from Clyde Road to Cardinia Road. It will also duplicate and extend Oshea Road to the freeway, upgrade the Beaconsfield interchange and extend the overhead electronic signage from South Gippsland Freeway to Beaconsfield interchange.



The project is expected to reduce congestion and travel times and increase network resilience on this important freeway corridor.



The Australian and Victorian governments are each contributing $500 million to this $1 billion project.


Construction on Stage 1 commenced on 18 September 2016 and was completed in 2018. Stage 2 expected to commence in 2019 and be completed in mid-2022.
