Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road and Narre Warren North Road Safety Improvements

We’re investing $8.4 million to improve safety on Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road and Narre Warren North Road (C404), between Thompsons Road in Cranbourne and Fox Road in Narre Warren North to reduce road trauma and save lives. 

Project update - September 2021

To prevent head-on and run-off-road crashes, we’ll install flexible safety barriers along the left-hand side and centre median along this stretch of road. By installing these barriers, we’ll create a continuous safer journey for people traveling along this route.

Works are expected to begin in October 2021. 

What this means for you

When works are underway, drivers can expect delays of approximately five minutes. Further disruption updates will be provided before construction begins.

Why we're doing it

Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road and Narre Warren North Road (C404) is a high-volume, high-speed road in Victoria’s Metropolitan south east region, linking the growing suburban regions of Cranbourne and Narre Warren and helping connect suburban Melbourne to the Mornington Peninsula. It's a popular route for commuters and freight, as well as tourists accessing the Mornington Peninsula's coastline, unique townships, and wineries.

Between July 2015 and June 2020, there were 23 crashes recorded on Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road and Narre Warren North Road (C404) between Thompsons Road and Fox Road, with 16 resulting in serious injury, and tragically two people lost their lives.

Infrastructure plays a vital role in preventing serious crashes. It also helps to 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.

These upgrades will be made thanks to the Victorian and Australian Government’s $300 million Road Safety Program which aims to deliver safer, connected journeys in Victoria, while supporting our economic recovery.
