Celebrating Peninsula Link's completion
'Having bought our block of land in 1970, I had always seen the proposed freeway marked in the Melways. I have watched with enormous interest in the construction in Seaford and Frankston North almost daily. I think it is wonderful to see something growing before my eyes' - Dawn
After almost three years since construction began on Peninsula Link, the long awaited 27km link from Carrum Downs to Mt Martha opened to traffic on 18 January 2013.
People can now travel to and from the Peninsula without encountering a single traffic light and bypassing up to nine sets of traffic lights and six major roundabouts. Roads like Frankston Freeway and Moorooduc Highway are experiencing less traffic, making a huge difference to locals who currently face congestion every day.

The freeway was first proposed in 1969 and a lot has happened in the Peninsula Link corridor since then. With construction starting in 2010 and now complete in 2013, the landscape of the area has changed dramatically.
To celebrate this great milestone, we invite you to share your memories, experiences and images of the project over the past four decades, particularly during construction, as a digital history of the project and the transformation of the local community.
