Westall Road extension (completion)

Westall Road forms part of a planned arterial road network link from Monash Freeway, Mulgrave to the Dandenong and Dingley Bypasses, which provides connections to major arterials through to the South Gippsland Highway, Dandenong South and to Warrigal Road. Now that the Dingley Bypass has been constructed, the network will be completed with an extension of Westall Road from Princes Highway to Monash Freeway/ Ferntree Gully Road, including an intersection with Wellington Road.

The Westall Road extension will have a major impact in diverting traffic from nearby roads that are overloaded such as Blackburn Road, Clayton Road and Springvale Road, significantly easing congestion and provide opportunities to enhance public transport on these roads.

It may even become a principal public transport route. The road extension will also improve access to the Monash Employment Cluster, and provide for better freight movement throughout and beyond the region.
