Bypass feedback sought


CONCEPT designs for the Mordialloc Bypass have been released and Kingston residents are being asked by the state government for their say.

A nine-kilometre link between the Mornington Peninsula Freeway and the Dingley Bypass will be built at a cost of $300 million.

Input from the community will shape the final design, with locals encouraged to view and comment on the plans through an interactive map on the VicRoads site online.

Geotechnical investigations were recently undertaken within the Mordialloc Creek wetlands to determine potential bridge pier locations and investigate environmental impacts.

The final design of the Bypass will be determined through an extensive planning and environmental process, which includes a referral to the Planning Minister’s Office to determine if an Environmental Effects Statement (EES) is required.

The outcome of the EES referral is expected by September.

“Feedback from local residents and businesses will be integral in determining the final design of the project – that’s why it’s important that everyone has their say on this much needed project,” Mordialloc Labor MP Tim Richardson said.

“VicRoads will hold pop up information sessions to raise awareness of the project, meet with local community groups, and give the community an opportunity to view plans for the project.”
