MAKING FRANKSTON-FLINDERS ROAD SAFER FOR ALL ROAD USERS

Motorists travelling in Melbourne’s south-east will soon benefit from a safer and more reliable journey thanks to road rehabilitation works in Tyabb.

Member for Eastern Victoria Jane Garrett said further works have begun on Frankston-Flinders Road, building on the Victorian Government’s significant investment to maintain other road sections earlier this year.

Works between Mornington-Tyabb Road and Western Port Highway will repair the road pavement across a 650 metre stretch of road.

Crews will work through the night to minimise disruption to motorists, with works expected to be completed by mid-December, weather permitting.

In July, interim asphalt repairs were undertaken on sections between Mornington-Tyabb Road and the Western Port Highway roundabout. More significant repairs can now take place as the weather gets warmer.

The works in Tyabb will build on the Government’s $3.6 million investment at the start of the year to rehabilitate three sections of Frankston-Flinders Road in Somerville, Baxter, and Hastings.

Road resurfacing works also took place on Frankston-Flinders Road in Balnarring in May as part of the broader Balnarring signalised pedestrian crossing upgrade, which is currently underway.

Since 2018 the Government has rebuilt or resurfaced around 925 kilometres or a quarter of metropolitan roads to ensure their quality and safety.

Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead and allow extra travel time to reach their destination and are reminded to slow down around work zones.
