Have Your Say: Southern Peninsula Traffic Investigation

Mornington Peninsula Shire is investigating alternative traffic plans to using the southern peninsula freeway reserve to reduce traffic congestion, and you are invited to provide thoughts on a preliminary investigation report.  
With Melbourne’s population forecast to be eight million by 2050 and the Mornington Peninsula being referred to as Melbourne’s playground, the resultant pressures on the Shire’s road network are going to significantly increase. 
Council hears community concerns in relation to the increasing impacts of traffic congestion on the peninsula, especially during summer periods and long weekends.

The investigation looks at ideas for short, medium and long-term traffic congestion management options as alternatives to using the southern peninsula freeway reserve through the environmentally and culturally significant Tootgarook Wetlands.
