cut 10 minutes off a trip between the Mornington Peninsula Freeway and the Dingley Bypass. The freeway will connect the Mornington Peninsula Freeway at Springvale Road in Aspendale Gardens to the Dingley Bypass in Dingley Village, establishing a continuous freeway from Frankston to Clayton. The new freeway will have entry and exit ramp interchanges at Springvale Road, Governor Road, Lower Dandenong Road and Centre Dandenong Road. A new interchange will also be built at Thames Promenade. An Environmental Effects Statement is to be done by the Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning amid some concerns about the impact the new bypass may have on the nearby Seaford-Edithvale Wetlands.

Construction of the long-mooted Mordialloc Bypass will begin next year with completion due by the end of 2021.
