The Dandenong Valley Highway (also predominantly known as Stud Road and Dandenong Frankston Road) stretches almost 30 kilometres from Wantirna South in Melbourne's eastern suburbs to Frankston in the south. For its entire length, its main name is not actually Dandenong Valley Highway, and very few locals use it. The traffic on the highway has been significant over the years with the worst bottlenecks at Burwood Highway, Ferntree Gully Road, Wellington Road, Princes Highway, and Thompsons Road, but since the opening of the EastLink, the traffic burden has significantly reduced along the highway with the north-south tollway, opening to traffic on 29 June 2008.

Route[edit]

Dandenong Valley Highway begins at its junction with the Nepean Highway, in central Frankston. It heads as a two-lane, two-way road alongside the Frankston railway line to the Frankston Freeway. It then roughly heads north east as a four lane dual carriageway to Dandenong, the centre of which the road runs through as a four lane single carriageway. After Dandenong, the road again becomes a four lane dual carriageway, heading north, through Rowville, Scoresby and Westfield Knox shopping centre in Wantirna South. At Boronia Road in Wantirna, the road narrows down to one lane, before eventually terminating at Mountain Highway, in Bayswater.

Otherwise known as[edit]

There are a variety of street names which exceed the Dandenong Valley Highway status which includes:

  • Stud Road (from Bayswater to Dandenong)
