Following the release of the Environmental Effects Statement (EES) in October 2018, the $375 million Mordialloc Freeway project in Victoria marks another major milestone with the announcement of a preferred contractor to deliver the early works for the project.

Major Road Projects Victoria has awarded the $25 million early works package to the Decmil - McConnell Dowell joint venture. Under this contract, the joint venture partners will deliver detailed design works for the Mordialloc Freeway project.
