Mordialloc Freeway - seeking the best outcome for the community

Update: December 2018
Kingston Council has finalised its submission to the Victorian Government that aims to ensure the new Mordialloc Freeway is built with the best possible outcomes for the community.

The final report is available for view in the document library on the right hand side of this page.



Community consultation on the Victorian Government’s plans for the new Mordialloc Freeway is now underway.

The Mordialloc Freeway is a proposed new 9km freeway linking the end of the Mornington Peninsula Freeway at Springvale Road to the Dingley Bypass. It will run alongside Waterways, Aspendale Gardens, Braeside Park, Dingley Village and local industrial estates.

Kingston Council is keen to ensure the project delivers the best possible outcome for the community and is calling for six key priorities to be included in the plans. We want to ensure these priorities are in-line with community opinions – and would welcome your feedback to help guide Council’s submission and influence the design of the new freeway.

What Council would like to see:

  • Sensitive interfaces of Braeside Park, Dingley Village, Aspendale Gardens and Waterways communities are well-managed – While noisewalls are included in residential areas, none are provided next to Braeside Park, Woodlands Industrial estate or parts of the Green Wedge. In residential areas noise walls should be carefully designed to reduce visual impact.
  • The design incorporates high-quality, visually recessive bridge structures to reduce visual impact
  • Effective visual and acoustic screening – In some sections no room is provided for landscaping to provide a visual/noise barrier between the Freeway and the surrounding homes/businesses.
  • Important community connections are maintained and the design should allow for future connections – Council welcomes the shared path along the freeway but would also like better connections with surrounding areas to ensure path is well-used eg: a link from Chadwick Reserve to Woodlands Estate and between Braeside Park and Mills Road. Council also wants the design to provide a separated link at the junction of the Dingley Bypass and the northern end of the Mordialloc Freeway.
  • The development should tell a clear, cohesive story that reflects the area – Current design has no clear theme and does not showcase views of neighbouring wetlands and open space.
  • Links and journeys are integrated, direct, accessible, legible, attractive and safe – Care must be taken to ensure pedestrian/cycling paths are safe, well-lit and attractive.

Have your say
The community can have input into the project in a number of ways:

  • Read Council’s draft report and add your support to Council’s six ‘key priorities’ or suggest changes at www.yourkingstonyoursay.com.au by Monday 3 December. An independent inquiry panel appointed by the Minister for Planning is scheduled for February 2019. Any comments received before then can assist in guiding Council’s submission through the process.
