Project background

In 2014, VicRoads received funding to prepare a business case for the construction of the Westall Road Extension.

The proposed Westall Road Extension passes through the Monash National Employment and Innovation Cluster (NEIC) (External link). This is Melbourne’s largest concentration of employment outside of the CBD. To manage the growing population and employment in this area, we’ll need to improve the transport network. The Westall Road Extension is expected to divert traffic and freight from nearby roads, improving traffic movement from Princes Highway to the Monash Freeway, and improving access to the Monash NEIC and the wider area.

Due for completion in early 2018, the final business case will include the preferred design of the Westall Road Extension and will be provided to government to inform future funding priorities.

About the project

The Westall Road Extension is proposed to follow an existing road reserve from the intersection of Westall Road/Princes Highway to the Monash Freeway

Project benefits

  • Improved traffic movement in and aroud the south-eastern region and Monash NEIC.
  • Better freight routes to commercial areas in Moorabbin, Braeside and Dandenong South.
  • Better connections to Clayton and Springvale Activity Centres.
  • Opportunity to improve public transport operations on priority bus routes in the area. 

Community involvement

From June to August 2017, we consulted with you to understand the existing situation and learn from your local experience of using Westall Road and the surrounding road network.
Your feedback helped us understand the key issues, concerns and any ideas you may have regarding the proposed extension.
