Gridlock on the Monash if the Port Hastings Development Goes ahead

 

MELBOURNE’S busiest arterial roads, the Monash Freeway and the Ring Road, could grind to a halt should the Port of Hastings become a second container port.

An extra 40,000 trucks a day would hit the roads, according to two independent reports on the impact on traffic of the new port.

Consultant Deloitte, in leaked road modelling seen by the Herald Sun, has estimated that an extra 30,000-35,000 trucks would take to the Monash on a weekday.
