Delivering for Corangamite

Building Safer Roads

In such a large regional electorate, building safer roads is a key priority of the Morrison Government. Key road projects funded in whole or part by our Government include:

MAJOR ROADS

  • $292 million to duplicate Barwon Heads Rd between Settlement Rd and Reserve Rd. This will provide much needed infrastructure for Marshall, Charlemont, Armstrong Creek and Bellarine residents, making this major road safer and less congested.
  • Duplication of Princes Highway between Winchelsea and Colac
  • Safety upgrade of Great Ocean Road
  • Upgrade Hamilton Highway between Geelong and Inverleigh
  • Safety upgrade of Apollo Bay to Forrest Rd

In addition to the major road safety investments that the Morrison Government is making across Corangamite, a new $2 billion Road Safety Fund will deliver more opportunities to invest in safer roads.

KEY LOCAL ROADS

  • Upgrade of Murradoc Rd St Leonards
  • New roundabout and safer intersection at entrance to Bannockburn
  • Upgrade of Cape Otway Rd/Lorne-Winchelsea Rd intersection
  • Grubb Road Ocean Grove

  • Roads to Recovery Program: direct funding to local councils for local road upgrades
