Have your say on Mordialloc Freeway design

26 November 2018

Kingston Council and the community are joining forces to ensure the Mordialloc Freeway is delivered with the best possible outcome for our area.

Community consultation on the Victorian Government’s plans for the new Mordialloc Freeway is now underway and Council has put together a six-point plan to ensure a quality result for our community.

What Council would like to see:

  • Sensitive interfaces of Braeside Park, Dingley Village, Aspendale Gardens and Waterways communities are well-managed – While noisewalls are included in residential areas, none are provided next to Braeside Park, Woodlands Industrial estate or parts of the Green Wedge. In residential areas noise walls should be carefully designed to reduce visual impact.
  • The design incorporates high-quality, visually recessive bridge structures to reduce visual impact
  • Effective visual and acoustic screening – In some sections no room is provided for landscaping to provide a visual/noise barrier between the Freeway and the surrounding homes/businesses.
  • Important community connections should be maintained and designed to allow for future connections – Council welcomes the shared path along the freeway but would also like better connections with surrounding areas to ensure path is well-used eg: a link from Chadwick Reserve to Woodlands Estate and between Braeside Park and Mills Road. Council also wants the design to provide a separated link at the junction of the Dingley Bypass and the northern end of the Mordialloc Freeway.
  • The development should tell a clear, cohesive story that reflects the area – Current design has no clear theme and does not showcase views of neighbouring wetlands and open space.
  • Links and journeys are integrated, direct, accessible, legible, attractive and safe – Care must be taken to ensure pedestrian/cycling paths are safe, well-lit and attractive.

    The community can add their views a number of ways:
