Mornington Peninsula Shire will soon be completing the third and final stage of the Bentons Road upgrade in Moorooduc – one of the Peninsula’s significant east-west road corridors.
Construction works are 95 per cent complete with the installation of steel crash barriers still pending.
Bentons Road will be reopened to traffic with a temporary 60km/hr speed limit in place for the Christmas period.
The road will be closed again from 11 January 2022 to allow for crash barrier installation works and reopened to the public in February 2022.
We’re looking forward to completing the project early next year. 2021 was a challenging year and construction was interrupted and delayed for several reasons including COVID-19 working restrictions, storm damage, wet weather and availability of materials.
