South Gippsland Highway, Cranbourne East to Lang Lang

We’re improving safety along the South Gippsland Highway between Cranbourne East to the Bass Highway in Lang Lang, as part of Towards Zero.

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.

By installing these safety features and improving existing infrastructure, we can prevent serious crashes from happening, or reduce the severity of crashes when they are unavoidable.

Project update

Construction of this project is planned to commence late this year and will continue through to mid-2020. For more details about the project, please come and visit us at our Towards Zero information stands in September.  


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, 32 suffered serious injuries along this stretch of road, and tragically 3 people lost their lives.

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


Flexible safety barriers are already in place along sections of the road. 

As part of this project we will be installing additional barriers 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.  

The project is planned to be completed by 2020.
