On this section of freeway in the past five years alone there have been 48 serious crashes. More than half of these were run-off road crashes resulting in three people losing their lives and a further nine being hospitalised with serious injuries.

In response, VicRoads and the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) are working closely with Mornington Peninsula Shire, Victoria Police, Country Fire Authority, State Emergency Services and Ambulance Victoria to improve safety on this important regional route. 

VicRoads will be holding an information session to show the community their plans to improve safety along this road.

Where: Atrium, Safety Beach Country Club, 10 Country Club Drive, Safety Beach
When:  Pop in any time between 10am and 7pm on Wednesday 19 July, 2017.

At the information session you'll get the chance to view and give feedback on design plans, cross sections and concept landscape plans.
