Peninsula Link Freeway
Peninsula Link is revolutionising the way you travel through the Mornington Peninsula.
Peninsula Link is the new 27km freeway that connects the south end of EastLink to the north end of the Mornington Peninsula Fwy (which runs from Mt Martha to Rosebud). This means there is nearly 100km of motorway – and no traffic lights – from Hoddle St Collingwood all the way to Rosebud.
You DON'T need to pay a toll to use Peninsula Link.

Traffic congestion has significantly reduced. Large volumes of traffic have been taken off the Frankston Freeway, which is often congested (e.g. during afternoon peak times). Traffic has also been taken off Frankston - Flinders Rd (Moorooduc Hwy) and Nepean Hwy.
EastLink tolls have NOT changed with the opening of Peninsula Link. The same tolls as previously will continue to apply when passing under each EastLink tolling gantry. The same toll cap will continue to apply, and the same prices will be charged for EastLink trip passes. EastLink still has the cheapest tolls on any private tollway in Australia - a full length 39km trip on EastLink costs an average of 14 cents per kilometre for a car with a tag.
