Rumble strips, also known as audio-tactile line markings, are small bumps that make a ‘rumbling’ sound and cause a vehicle to vibrate when driven over, alerting drivers that they’re moving out of their lane and helping to prevent head-on or run-off-road collisions.
In coming months, we'll install rumble strips along 1600km of roads in north western Victoria, as part of a state-wide program to improve safety on rural and regional roads.
In June through to August, we’ll be installing rumble strips and refreshing lane markings at these locations:
|Sturt Highway/Road||Mildura to South Australian border|
|Red Cliffs-Colignan Road||Red Cliffs to Colignan|
|Murray Valley Highway||Swan Hill to Robinvale|
|Calder Highway||Marong to Ouyen|
