Mornington Peninsula Freeway safety improvements, Aspendale to Seaford

We’re improving safety along the Mornington Peninsula Freeway, from Springvale Road in Aspendale to the Frankston Freeway in Frankston as part of Towards Zero.

Project update 

Construction of this project 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 Freeway, to prepare for the upcoming installation of safety barriers.

Crews will be completing weed spraying and mowing each night (except for Fridays and Saturdays), between 8pm and 5am.

During works, you can expect to see:

  • 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
  • one lane of traffic diverted to the road shoulder, to keep traffic flowing in both directions.

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.

Background 

The Mornington Peninsula Freeway is an important route linking Melbourne to growing communities in Frankston and 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.  

Between 2013 and 2017, there were nine people who suffered serious injuries along this stretch of road, and one person who tragically lost their life.

We’re improving safety along the Mornington Peninsula Freeway now, to build a future where no-one is seriously injured or killed on our roads. 

Details

Flexible safety barriers are already in place along sections of this road. 

As part of this project we will be installing additional barriers flexible safety barriers on the left-hand side and centre median side of the road in high-risk locations, providing a continuous safer corridor to reduce the risk of head-on and run-off-road crashes.  

This project forms part of an overarching plan to upgrade the high-risk roads between Aspendale and the Mornington Peninsula.  As part of these works, 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 south-east Victoria.

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 project is planned to be completed by 2020.

We will be consulting with the local community on access requirements for landowners, businesses and emergency services.

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