Major Morrison Government infrastructure projects on the Mornington Peninsula are scheduled to get underway in 2021, as confirmed by the Victorian Government.
Improvements to the Forest Drive and Uralla Road intersections with the Nepean Highway in Mount Martha, as well as pedestrian upgrades on Frankston-Flinders Road in Balnarring will all begin construction in 2021.
In addition, pedestrian safety improvements and the construction of the Jetty Road overpass in Rosebud will commence in 2022, with early works possible in 2021.
“At the 2019 election, I was proud to secure $86 million for key infrastructure improvements on the Mornington Peninsula,” Minister Hunt said.
“While the world’s focus has been on COVID-19 in 2020, the work to continue to improve Mornington Peninsula infrastructure has never been far from my mind.”
“Planning work being undertaken by the Victorian Government has confirmed that construction works Forest Drive, Uralla Road and Frankston-Flinders Road will all commence in 2021, with major construction on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway to follow the next year.”
“To date, the Morrison Government provided more than $4.6 million to begin planning for these projects and I am pleased that the Victorian Government continues to work to implement these much needed upgrades.”
