Noise modelling and management for the Monash Freeway UpgradeRead more
The Monash Freeway Upgrade will add new lanes to the Monash Freeway where they are most needed. EastLink to Clyde Road will see an extra lane in each direction, with smart technology added from Chadstone to Pakenham to ease congestion for faster travel.
The project means faster, safer and more reliable journeys for 200,000 motorists every day.
Work on the Monash Freeway Upgrade started in September 2016. The upgrade will be completed in 2018.
Yellow line marking has been installed in some sections between Eastlink and Clyde Road. This is so we can keep the current number of lanes open for you during the day while we widen and upgrade the Freeway.
Drive within the yellow lines in these sections and obey the reduced speed limits through work zones. Signage will also let you know when you are about to enter the yellow line marking zone.
Watch a video further explaining these yellow line markings and how to drive within them.
