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’ll be hosting two pop-up stalls at community markets in September to talk with you about the upcoming works. Come and visit our Towards Zero information stands to speak with our team and ask questions about the projects.

Mornington Racecourse Craft Markets

320 Racecourse Road, Mornington 
Sunday 8 September, 9am - 2pm 

Pearcedale Community Markets

710 Baxter-Tooradin Road, Pearcedale 
Saturday 21 September, 9am - 12 noon.


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 Franskton
  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.
