Roadworks & Closures

Golf links Road Upgrade

Major Projects Victoria is starting works on the Golf Links Road on 12 October. The first stage of works includes a 12 week closure of Golf Links Road from Peninsula Link to the McClelland Drive roundabout.  

The upgrade aims to make it easier and safer to get to Peninsula Link, Somerville, Hastings and the Western Port Highway. It will also make it easier and safer for trucks to get to Grant Road and the Somerville commercial precinct. Safety barriers will lower the risk and severity of crashes. 

Slip at Bay Road crossing over Hopetoun Creek, Mount Martha

The Shire has closed a lane of Bay Road, Mount Martha due to a slip where the road crosses Hopetoun Creek. Temporary traffic signals will control traffic flow, and the rest of the road will remain open.

Engineers have assessed the damage and are developing a plan to stabilise and reinstate the embankment, with a report and recommended treatment expected in the coming days, with the road being fully opened as soon as it is safe to do so.

Installation of linking footpath and a pedestrian refuge island Frankston-Flinders Road, Somerville

The Shire has been made aware of missing footpaths and safe crossing opportunities close to 1190 Frankston-Flinders Road in Somerville. The Shire will therefore install a footpath along with a pedestrian refuge island. 

The Shire is initiating this project to address a key safety issue raised by members of the community and to provide improved connectivity for the existing pedestrian network. The whole project is scheduled to be delivered by June 2021.
