South Gippsland Highway, Cranbourne East to Lang Lang

We’ve improved safety along the South Gippsland Highway between Cranbourne East and Lang Lang, as we work towards a future where no one is seriously injured or killed on our roads.

What we’ve done

Flexible safety barriers are already in place along sections of the road. We’ve now installed additional flexible safety barriers on the centreline and left-hand side of the road in high-risk locations, providing a continuous corridor and reducing the risk of head-on and run-off-road crashes.

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.

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.

South Gippsland Highway

Background 

The South Gippsland Highway is a high speed, high volume road connecting the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria’s metropolitan south east with the growing outer eastern region. It is also a key route linking Melbourne and Phillip Island. 

Between 2013 to 2017, there were 32 serious injuries suffered along this stretch of road, and tragically three people lost their lives.

We’ve improved safety between Cranbourne East and Lang Lang on the South Gippsland Highway, to build a future where no-one is seriously injured or killed on our roads.
