Thompsons Road duplication and Western Port Highway intersection upgrade

Consultation has concluded

What does Casey need?

Council is seeking a funding commitment of $220 million for the duplication of Thompsons Road between South Gippsland Highway and Western Port Highway, and
an upgrade of the intersection with Western Port Highway.

Why does the Western Port Highway and Thompsons Road intersection require an upgrade?

The Western Port Highway and Thompsons Road intersection is a major bottleneck affecting connections between Casey and the Monash Freeway corridor and links to the Mornington Peninsula and Hastings regions.

The significant flow of traffic during commuter peaks frequently results in vehicle queues in excess of one kilometre in any of the approach directions. This has created significant transference of traffic onto local roads which are not designed to cater to such large commuter volumes creating numerous access and safety issues.

The upgrade will:

  • Minimise the likelihood for arterial road traffic travelling through residential areas
  • Support freight access into growing industrial areas
  • Facilitate the development of employment land in Cranbourne West
  • Provide connection to support the future development of the Port of Hastings.
