Mornington Peninsula Freeway safety improvements, Aspendale to Seaford

We’ve improved safety along the Mornington Peninsula Freeway, from Springvale Road in Aspendale to the Frankston Freeway in Frankston, as we work towards a future where no one is seriously injured or killed on our roads.

What we’ve done

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

As part of this project we’ve installed additional flexible safety barriers on the centre median and left-hand 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’ve improved 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.

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 - as humans we can’t always avoid them. What we can do is build a more forgiving road environment so that if a mistake does happen on the road, it doesn’t cost a life.

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.

Works to improve safety along the Mornington Peninsula Freeway were completed in April 2020.

The Victorian Government, in partnership with TAC, is investing $1.4 billion into road safety infrastructure under Towards Zero, a plan for a future where no one is seriously injured or killed on our roads.
