Mordialloc Bypass

The Mordialloc Bypass is a proposed new 9km link between the end of the Mornington Peninsula Freeway at Springvale Road, Aspendale Gardens and the Dingley Bypass, Dingley.

In May 2017, the Victorian Government committed $300 million in funding to build the Mordialloc Bypass by late 2021.

VicRoads is currently progressing planning and investigations for the project, with a view to start construction by mid 2019. This timeline is subject to thorough environmental and planning approvals.

Project update - August 2017

View the concept design and have your say.

As part of our planning we want you to help us inform and shape our design.  If you live, work, visit, travel through, or have an interest in the new Mordialloc Bypass you can view the concept designs on engagevicroads  and have your say.

Leave a comment on the interactive map and let us know what you liked about the design, and what areas or aspects you think we need to consider. 

The map will be open for comment until midnight Sunday 1 October 2017. We will then review the feedback and use it to help us as we refine the designs, and provide a summary report about what we heard.

To support our online engagement we will also be hosting pop-up information stands in a number of shopping centres and community spaces in the area throughout August and September.  

Further planning

We are continuing to assess the potential project impacts. 

We will work with local residents to consider the effects of noise, air quality, access and visual features of the project and what mitigation measures can be put in place.   

We are committed to looking after the environment and are continuing our investigations to determine what impacts the project may have and what measures we can put in place to avoid or minimise these impacts. 

In July, VicRoads submitted a referral to the Planning Minister to decide if an Environmental Effects Statement (EES) is required for the project. We expect to have a decision by late August 2017. We will keep you updated.


The new bypass will help combat delays and improve safety in one of outer Melbourne’s fastest growing areas.

The new arterial road will improve access to the Dandenong South Employment and Innovation Cluster and industrial areas in Braeside and Moorabbin. Road users will also have improved access to residential, recreation and other activity centres in the area.

The reduced traffic volumes on Springvale Road will improve bus operations, which, together with the provision of a shared pedestrian and cycling path along the Mordialloc Bypass, will provide a more balanced transport network solution for the area.

What happens next?

We will provide the community with an update on the Planning Minister’s decision on the Environmental Effects Statement in late August 2017, and provide further information about the process.

We will continue to engage with local residents and community groups with an interest in the project.

We will review the feedback received on the concept designs and provide a summary report in late October/early November.

We will keep you updated as the designs progress.
