New safety barriers on Princes Highway

More than 40km of safety barriers have been installed along the Princes Highway between Melbourne and Geelong as part of the Labor Government’s Towards Zero road safety strategy in partnership with the Transport Accident Commission and VicRoads.

Minister for Roads and Road Safety, Luke Donnellan, recently inspected the $17.5 million project, which will see an additional 100km of barriers installed between Waurn Ponds and Laverton North over the next year.

The project is nearing the halfway mark with work on the Geelong-bound carriageway progressing at a rate of one kilometre a day. The entire 73km safety upgrade is expected to be complete by the end of 2018.

“We’re rolling out more than 140km of wire rope barrier on the Princes Highway between Geelong to stop run-off road crashes and keep people safe on this critical arterial road,” said Donnellan.

The Andrews Labor Government is investing $1 billion to improve safety on high-risk arterial roads, rolling out more than 1,500km of wire rope barriers across Victoria.
