Aspendale to Mornington Peninsula safety improvements

We’re improving safety at high-risk locations along the Mornington Peninsula Freeway, the Frankston Freeway, and the Moorooduc Freeway to create a continuous safe corridor linking Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula, as part of Towards Zero

Project update 

Construction of these projects is planned to commence in late 2019 and will continue into early-2020. We will let you know the timing of works and any traffic impacts prior to the beginning of construction. 


We’re improving safety between Aspendale and the Mornington Peninsula, including:

  1. Mornington Peninsula Freeway, between Aspendale and Seaford
  2. Frankston Freeway, between Carrum Downs and Frankston
  3. Moorooduc Freeway, between Mount Eliza and Moorooduc

Infrastructure plays a vital role in keeping you safe, which is why we're installing a range of new technologies and proven safety features on roads across the state.

By installing these safety features and improving existing infrastructure, we can prevent serious crashes from happening, or reduce the severity of crashes when they are unavoidable.


This corridor is a high-volume, high-speed route linking suburban Melbourne to the Mornington Peninsula. The Mornington Peninsula is a popular destination for locals and tourists alike, drawn to the famous coastline, beaches, unique townships, wineries and more. 

Improving safety along this corridor is important to supporting the growing economies and communities of the peninsula.  

Flexible safety barriers are already in place along sections of the road. As part of this project we will be installing additional barriers in high-risk locations, providing a continuous safer corridor to reduce the risk of head-on and run-off-road crashes.

Have your say

We held two community pop-up stalls in September to talk about these projects. If you missed the pop-ups but have a question about the projects, you can contact us via the email address below.

Every effort will be made to minimise impacts to visitors, residents, businesses and the environment during the project.
