What we'll do and when
As part of the Mordialloc Freeway Project, we’re building an interchange at Lower Dandenong Road, Braeside. Once complete, the interchange will include entry and exit ramps, traffic signals and a widened section of Lower Dandenong Road and Woodlands Drive.
In response to community feedback we’re including a north-bound exit ramp onto Woodlands Drive. This new exit ramp means Woodlands Drive will remain open once the Freeway is finished.
While we continue these works, we’ll be closing Woodlands Drive at the intersection with Lower Dandenong Road from 6am Thursday 5 November to 7pm Wednesday 2 December 2020.
During this time, we’ll complete 16 weeks of work in just 4 weeks, including:
Detours will be in place via Boundary and Mills roads or Boundary and Malcolm roads. Please allow up to an extra 10 minutes when planning your journey.
Shops and businesses will be open while we work, and we’ll maintain access to properties via the detour routes.
The westbound bus stop on Lower Dandenong Road at Woodlands Drive will also be temporarily closed while we complete these works. The nearest alternative stop is located on Lower Dandenong Road at Redwood Drive approximately 170 metres to the west. Please visit ptv.vic.gov.au for more information and plan ahead.
What you can expect
We’ll use trucks, excavators and other machinery to complete the works. You may experience some noise and vibration. We’ll do our best to keep our construction impacts to a minimum.
We’ll keep you informed of changes to traffic conditions through road signs and traffic controllers. For more information, visit Victoria's Big Build.
