Overview

As part of stage 2 of the Monash Freeway Upgrade, we’re upgrading O’Shea Road to reduce congestion and improve connections to the Princes Freeway. On this page, you can view the design for the O'Shea Road Upgrade and ask questions about the design directly to the project team.

Project design

The design for the O’Shea Road Upgrade has been independently audited to ensure that it meets road safety requirements.

The design includes:

  • upgrading O’Shea Road to three lanes in each direction between Clyde Road and Soldiers Road
  • extending O’Shea Road so it joins the Beaconsfield interchange
  • upgrading the Beaconsfield interchange to a full diamond interchange – we’ll add an inbound freeway off-ramp and an outbound freeway on-ramp with ramp signals
  • adding traffic lights at Skyline Way, Bridgewater Boulevard and Soldiers Road with included pedestrian crossings
  • upgrading the intersection at Clyde Road
  • adding centre median openings at Moondarra Drive, Riviera Drive and Jembecca Drive
  • upgrading and extending the walking and cycling paths along O’Shea Road between Greaves Road and the Princes Highway, including a pedestrian bridge over the Pakenham railway line
  • adding safety barriers from Greaves Toad to beyond the Beaconsfield interchange
  • adding new road lighting on Greaves Road and O’Shea Road
  • planting approximately 43,000 trees, plants, shrubs and ground cover that are native Australian species and specific for the area.

Project benefits

Once complete, the upgrades on O’Shea Road and the Beaconsfield interchange will:

  • reduce congestion and travel times
  • improve traffic flow
  • take pressure off Clyde Road
  • make it easier to travel around the local area and join the freeway
  • make it easier and safer to walk and cycle around the local area
  • improve the flow of public transport.
