Have Your Say: Road Improvement Strategy
Have your say on how the Mornington Peninsula Shire proposes to improve our road network.
Council resolved at its Council Meeting on Tuesday 24 April that the Draft Road Improvement Strategy be placed on formal public exhibition for four weeks.
The primary aim of the strategy is to raise the standard of the local road network to meet the increasing safety, connectivity and mobility needs of the Shire.
It will assist to deliver road improvements that meet community expectations, as well as provide Council with the ability to effectively manage the standard of road infrastructure across the local road network.
Key elements of the project include:
- Comprehensive assessment of all available road data to ensure suitable road safety standards, road condition and transport functionality requirements are met;
- Responsive to community views in determining the road improvement priorities; and
- Provide Council with the ability to make informed decisions regarding the level of investment directed towards improving the Shire’s road network.
As part of our 2017 – 2021 Council Plan, the Road Improvement Strategy is a major initiative to achieve better connectivity and mobility for our community.
The Shire already invests around $8.9 million across its 1,700km road network annually for renewal and improvement.
This strategy will help us better identify, consider and prioritise which of our many local roads and intersections are the highest priority for road improvement works to ensure the safety of all our road users including cyclists and pedestrians.
