TRAFFIC detours are in place this week as work continues on the Mordialloc Freeway.
Howard Road at Lower Dandenong Road will be closed until 6pm on 23 April. While the road is shut, work will be undertaken to install new drainage, traffic lights and asphalt new lanes.
This month crews working on the Mordialloc Freeway are installing the remaining beams for the twin bridges over the Waterways wetlands, building the supports for the bridge over Lower Dandenong Road, installing barriers and drainage on the bridge on Centre Dandenong Road, and building the bridge retaining wall on the south side of Springvale Road.
Last month the pedestrian underpass at Braeside Park was opened, and bridge beams over Bowen Parkway were installed.
The completed freeway, projected to cost $523 million, will span nine kilometres from the Mornington Peninsula Freeway at Springvale Road in Aspendale Gardens to the Dingley Bypass in Dingley Village. It is expected to be finished by the end of 2021.
