Thompsons Road safety improvements, Mornington Peninsula Freeway to Narre Warren Road

We’ve improved safety along Thompson Road, between the Mornington Peninsula Freeway and Narre Warren Road, to reduce road trauma and save lives. 

Project update - May 2021

Works to install flexible safety barriers along Thompson Road, between the Mornington Peninsula Freeway and Narre Warren Road are now complete. 

Road safety improvements

Flexible safety barriers were already in place along some sections of the road. We’ve installed additional flexible safety barriers on the left-hand side of the road to create a continuous safer journey and reduce the risk of run-off-road crashes. 

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

Thompsons Road is a major road linking the Mornington Peninsula Freeway, Eastlink and the South Gippsland Highway. 

Between 2012 and 2016, there were 12 crashes recorded along this road, resulting in 13 people sustaining injuries, four of which suffered serious injuries.    

We’re improving safety along Thompsons Road, to build a future where no-one is seriously injured or killed on our roads.

As part of the jointly funded $245 million Road Safety Program, we’ll make further safety improvements to the local area by installing flexible safety barriers at high risk locations on Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road and Narre Warren - North Road between Princes Highway to Thompson Road and Princes Highway to Fox Road.
