The Healesville Freeway is a proposed[1] freeway in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia.

Planned route[edit]

Starting at Springvale Road at the border of Forest Hill and Vermont South, the freeway would head east intersecting EastLink with a full freeway junction, it will then head north east, finally joining Mooroolbark Road and terminating at Maroondah Highway at the border of Mooroolbark and Lilydale, linking up with the proposed Lilydale Bypass.

The freeway was originally designated in the 1969 Melbourne Transportation Plan as part of the F9 Freeway corridor, extending past Springvale Road, joining Riversdale Road and winding through Glen Iris to join the current Citylink Freeway. In 2011, VicRoads deemed the freeway reservation between Springvale Road and Boronia Road to no longer be necessary for road building purposes, and this section is currently being reviewed for future non-road uses.[2]
