Targeted road safety works program

We’re making Victorian roads safer thanks to this jointly-funded program to deliver shovel-ready infrastructure projects and urgent road safety improvements in Victoria.

Bass Highway flexible safety barriers

The joint Australian and Victorian Government Targeted Road Safety Works program is dedicating $97.2m to accelerate the delivery of new infrastructure projects, continue roads safety improvements and support construction jobs and economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Project Summary

Through the state-wide program, we’re delivering:

  • the Pedestrian and Safer Schools program to improve safety for pedestrians at more than 55 schools, shopping strips and intersections across the state
  • intersection safety upgrades on 30 high-speed, high-risk rural intersections
  • safety improvements at a further 16 locations across the state, including installing flexible safety barriers, roundabouts, traffic islands, lighting and signage enhancements and road surface treatments, as appropriate.

Project Benefits

These upgrades are being delivered by Safer Roads, in partnership with the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) and will help us continue to deliver a safer network for connected journeys to get Victorians home sooner and safer, while supporting economic recovery.

Infrastructure plays a vital role in preventing serious crashes. It also helps to reduce the severity of crashes when they’re unavoidable.

Mistakes happen, which as humans we can’t always avoid. What we can do is build more forgiving road infrastructure so that when a mistake does happen on the road, it doesn’t cost a life.
