VicRoads is calling on the community to provide feedback on the location of the overtaking lanes on the Midland Highway between Bannockburn and Meredith.

A drop-in feedback session will be held at the Lethbridge Recreation Reserve on Friday 28 October between 3.30pm and 6.30pm.

VicRoads has found six location options for the overtaking lanes and has commenced discussions with local property owners about how they use and access the Midland Highway. VicRoads now seeks feedback from other people that use the road on a regular basis.

Key factors to be considered will include environmental and heritage impacts, local access requirements, drainage, available space and any possible impacts to utility services. 

A map of the proposed locations can be found here (search Midland Highway) and a map of the locations of road accidents can be found here.

To provide your feedback, come along to the drop-in session (details above), email midlandhighway@roads.vic.gov.au or phone Michael Peel on 5225 2516.

About the project
•    In April this year, the Victorian Government announced $10 million for the construction of overtaking lanes between Bannockburn and Meredith. 
•    A total of four locations will be constructed: two overtaking lanes proposed between Bannockburn and Lethbridge, and two between Lethbridge and Meredith.
•    There have been a number of crashes on the Midland Highway in recent years; a large percentage of which have involved a vehicle crossing the centreline and crashing into an oncoming vehicle, or alternatively, rear ending other vehicles. These figures indicate that overtaking lanes are now crucial.
