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 as part of Towards Zero

Project update 

Construction of these projects is planned to commence in late 2019 and will continue into early-2020.

Preliminary works starting 18 November

We’re beginning preliminary works along the corridor, to prepare for the upcoming installation of safety barriers.

Crews will be completing weed spraying and mowing at the following times:

  • Nightly on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway (except for Fridays and Saturdays), between 8pm and 5am.
  • Nightly on the Frankston Freeway (except for Fridays and Saturdays) between 8pm and 5am.
  • Weekdays on the Moorooduc Freeway, between 9:30am and 4:30pm on the inbound lanes, and between 7am and 3pm on the outbound lanes. Crews will also be working on Saturdays between 7am and 3pm.

During works, you can expect to see:

  • rolling lane closures on the Frankston Freeway and Moorooduc Freeway, as crews progress along the route. We will maintain all lanes of traffic in both directions on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway, by making use of road shoulders during works.
  • a reduced speed limit of 60km/h through work sites, to protect both workers and drivers
  • a delay of up to five minutes in travel times.

These works will take approximately three weeks to complete, weather permitting. If you’re travelling through the area, please watch out for our signs and drive safely.

Details

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.

Background 

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.
