Helping you drive to the Southern Peninsula

For the third year running, the Shire, in collaboration with VicRoads, has installed travel time signage to help motorists make informed travel choices when visiting the Southern Peninsula.

Signage will broadcast estimated travel times for two alternative traffic routes to/from the southern peninsula: the coastal route of Point Nepean Road, and the inland route of Browns Road.

Beacons installed by VicRoads along each route, detect road users with a Bluetooth-enabled device, allowing the calculation of actual travel times to be estimated.

Signage then displays updated travel time of each route, so drivers can choose between the two options.

Mornington Peninsula Shire Mayor Councillor David Gill said over the years we’ve had positive feedback about the travel time signage.

“This signage provides us with invaluable data on trip times, such as traffic congestion levels and driver behaviour, which will help us strategically plan for future transport solutions on the Southern Peninsula”.
