Nepean Highway and Uralla Road intersection upgrade

Planning is underway to improve safety and access for all road users at the Nepean Highway and Uralla Road intersection in Mount Martha.

Project update

Investigations are currently being undertaken to develop and review possible improvement options at the Nepean Highway and Uralla Road intersection.

We will work closely with key stakeholders and continue to provide updates to the local community, as we progress further through the development stage.

Project background 

Mount Martha is a seaside suburb on the Mornington Peninsula, approximately 80km south of Melbourne. Approximately 18,000 vehicles travel along Nepean Highway in Mount Martha every day. Uralla Road is one of the primary access points into and out of Mount Martha from the Nepean Highway. 

In the 10 years leading up to March 2020, there were 11 reported crashes at the Nepean Highway and Uralla Road intersection, of which 5 crashes resulted in serious injuries.

High traffic volumes, the downhill slope and poor visibility of vehicles due to the curve on Nepean Highway are all contributing factors to drivers experiencing difficulties in entering and exiting Uralla Road.

Benefits 

This project will:

  • create safer access for drivers entering into or exiting from Uralla Road.
  • improve safety for all road users, including vulnerable road users such as cyclists 
  • meet the demands of future population and economic growth in the area
