Victoria’s first freeway alliance project, a $150 million reconfiguration of a high volume interchange, demanded high level input from all alliance parties and consultants.
Denton Corker Marshall was responsible for all urban design and freeway architecture input including elevated structures, barriers, retaining walls, noise walls and ancillary elements.
Key strategic urban design objectives were developed – consistency, legibility, wayfinding, sustainability – forming the basis of this and subsequent freeway projects.
Landscape, lighting and the Fin Wall are used to reinforce the alignment of the freeway as it turns north and assists with ‘wayfinding’ in the complex freeway interchange. Pioneering ESD solar power initiatives were integrated into the noise walls.
