Pines wall partially erected.

The Peninsula Link Project is a 27 kilometre freeway standard link between the existing Mornington Peninsular Freeway at Frankston and Mount Martha.

VSL was awarded the contract for the supply of the VSoL wall panels and design at the Mornington Tourist Railway, Pines and Eastlink Interchange sections of the works. A total of 12,500m2 of VSoL is to be supplied by VSL.

The Mornington Tourist Railway section is small section where the freeway passes over the existing rail way line. The conventional 2x2 panels were used for this section of wall.

The Pines section consists of 9,400m2 of hexagonal panels that comprised of 3 different colours and 3 different patterns using 3 different textures on each panel to meet the requirements of the urban architects design. The panels were erected in a varied arrangement to generate a gentle transition of 27 different perceived colours in the wall generated by the different levels of light reflection.

The Eastlink interchange is to be constructed using a two stage wall with a structural steel cladding using painted Full Height panels. The two-stage wall using galvanized mesh facing for stage one is the first of its kind in Australia. To date the first stage has been completed however the panels are yet to be cast and erected.

Approximately 1,000 tonnes of VSoL straps was supplied to the project.

Users of the completed link are expected to benefit by saving up to 40 minutes of travel time when traveling the full length of the link. Travel time on the link s expected to be 17 minutes taking traffic off the existing Frankston Freeway and Moorooduc Highway.

The link will undoubted boost tourism to the Mornington Peninsular area, in particular the wineries.
