Aspendale to Mornington Peninsula safety improvements

We’ve improved safety at high-risk locations in Melbourne’s South East, as part of the Victorian Government’s $1.4 billion investment, in partnership with the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) to reduce road trauma and save lives.

Project update 

Works for these projects started in late 2019 and were completed in mid-2021. To find out more about these individual projects, visit our project pages:

All major construction works on these roads are now complete. 

What we’ve done

Flexible safety barriers were already in place along some sections of these roads. We’ve installed additional flexible safety barriers to reduce the risk of head-on collisions and run-off-road crashes.

We’ve also introduced other safety treatments, including dedicated turning lanes, line marking, tactile surfaces and safer speeds in high-risk locations to improve safety for all road users.

Infrastructure plays a vital role in preventing serious crashes. It also helps reduce the severity of crashes when they’re unavoidable.

Road safety infrastructure such as flexible safety barriers, wide centreline treatments and rumble strips help prevent the most common crash types, head-on and run-off-road collisions, which in 2015 were responsible for 40% of Victoria’s road deaths and serious injuries. 

Mistakes happen, which as humans we can’t always avoid. What we can do is build more forgiving road infrastructure so that when a mistake does happen on the road, it doesn’t cost a life.

Many of these projects took place on high-speed and high-volume roads. Improving safety along these routes supported the growing economies and communities in the region.

Between 2013 and 2017, there were 97 people who suffered serious injuries along these stretches of road, and eight people who tragically lost their lives.

By improving safety along our Metropolitan South East roads, we are building a future where no one is seriously injured or killed on our roads.
