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 Victorian Government is investing $1.4 billion to implement Towards Zero, a plan to achieve fewer than 200 deaths by 2020 and reduce serious injuries by 15% on Victoria's roads.

Overview

Background

Approximately 11,500 vehicles use this 31km section of road every day. This increases to 18,000 during peak season and can get as high as 25,000 during major events.

Details

The safety features we’ve installed include:

  • left-hand side flexible safety barriers, to protect vehicles from hazards on the side of the road such as trees, power poles, culverts and steep slopes
  • centre-median flexible safety barriers to prevent potentially fatal head-on crashes
  • rumble strips on line-markings to alert drivers if they are moving out of their lane
  • upgraded and reprogrammed traffic lights at the Bass Highway-Pier Road intersection in Grantville, which provide controlled right-turns on both approaches of the highway and ensure safe local access to and from the side roads.
