Bass Highway - Lang Lang to Anderson Safety Improvements

We’re improving safety along Bass Highway, from Lang Lang to Anderson as part of Towards Zero. The State Government is investing $1.1 billion to achieve fewer than 200 deaths by 2020 and reduce serious injury by 15% on Victoria’s roads. 


Project background

This 31 kilometre section of the highway is currently a four lane divided carriageway. Approximately 11,500 vehicles per day use this section of road which swells to 18,000 during peak season and can get as high as 25,000 during major events.

Road safety improvements

The safety improvements we’re installing as part of this project include:

  • Installation of left side flexible safety barrier to protect vehicles from hazards such as trees, power poles, culverts, steep slopes etc
  • Installation of centre median flexible safety barrier to prevent vehicles straying from their lane and into oncoming traffic
  • Tactile edge line marking
  • Reprogramming the traffic signals at Bass Highway-Pier Road intersection in Grantville to fully controlled right turns on both approaches of the highway
  • Safe local access arrangements to properties and side roads with some breaks in the barrier and enhanced turning arrangements at selected locations
