Mordialloc Bypass - Dingley Village, Braeside, Aspendale Gardens
The Mordialloc Bypass is a proposed new 7.5km link between the termination of the Mornington Peninsula Freeway at Springvale Road, Aspendale Gardens and the soon to be constructed Dingley Bypass, Dingley.
In May 2014, $10.6 million was committed over four years (2014/15 to 2017/18) to complete the detailed planning and prepare an initial construction stage Business Case for the project.
A reservation for a northern extension of the Mornington Peninsula Freeway between Springvale Road, Aspendale Gardens, and the proposed Dingley Bypass, Dingley Village, has been in place for many years. The reservation is bordered by residential housing, industrial estates and Braeside Park, refer to Figure 1 for a locality plan.

A Feasibility Study into the transport needs in and surrounding the Mordialloc Bypass has been undertaken which concluded in mid-2014.
The study looked at the strategic transport needs of the region followed by investigations into some specific options within the Mordialloc Bypass reservation and upgrades to the existing road network to understand the short and long term transport solutions. It looked at some of the impacts any project would have on the environmental, cultural heritage and social values of the area.
In 2012 VicRoads engaged with the community with online surveys and an opportunity to attend issue identification sessions, held at Aspendale Gardens Community Centre, for the community to have their input into the study.
The outcomes of the Feasibility Study are summarised in the document below:

Over the next 18 months VicRoads will be undertaking further work to determine the approvals process and other project development activities.
As part of any future studies VicRoads will undertake further studies and consultation with the community.
The next section of the Dingley Corridor will see the construction of the Dingley Bypass between Warrigal Road and Westall Road. Please check the Dingley Bypass page for more information.
