Time to fund Mornington Safe Link

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) (14:08): The Mornington Safe Link project is a plan to construct a shared footway for cycling and walking along the old railway reserve between Mount Eliza and Mornington. The existing Peninsula Link trail terminates at Moorooduc station, Mount Eliza. The Mornington tourist rail runs along the rail reserve from Moorooduc, and a shared pathway along the route has been discussed for more than a decade.

Balcombe Grammar School Speed Zone – What’s Happening?

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) (12:55): (4733) My question is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety. The issue is the lack of appropriate speed reductions during school times outside Balcombe Grammar School on the Nepean Highway at Mount Martha. This is an issue I have raised on numerous occasions in the house, because unlike other locations in the electorate, the speed limit is a constant 80 kilometres per hour. It is not reduced, so it is

Forest Drive and Uralla Road – Why Are We Still Waiting?

I have frequently raised concerns about the condition of Nepean Highway between Balcombe Creek and Forest Drive in Mount Martha. The volume of traffic using that stretch of the road increased enormously when Peninsula Link opened. During the term of the former coalition government, at my urging, the speed limit south of Balcombe Grammar was reduced. The then Minister for Roads initiated preliminary consideration of potential solutions. At the first sitting of the last Parliament,

Question: Traffic Volumes on Tyabb Rd at Racecourse Road

MR MORRIS (Mornington) (12:44:06): (623) My question is to the Minister for Roads in the other place. Since Peninsula Link opened, traffic along Mornington-Tyabb Road has increased significantly. While there are issues along the entire length of the road, the section between Nepean Highway and Moorooduc Highway is now badly congested, particularly at peak hour but frequently at other times throughout the day. One of the worst intersections is at Racecourse Road, currently a single-lane

Are the Main St Traffic Counts Really Accurate?

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) (17:17): (541) I raise a matter for the Minister for Roads, and the action I am seeking from the minister is that she direct VicRoads to undertake an analysis of the traffic signal detector counts for the intersection of the Nepean Highway and Main Street, Mornington, recorded in January 2016, January 2018 and May 2018 and provide a breakdown of the number of vehicles entering Main Street from Mornington-Tyabb Road, entering Main

Main Street – Good start but more needed

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) (12:55:17) — (14 282) My question is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety. In August 2017 I asked the minister in this house to provide traffic counts for Main Street in Mornington. Indeed he responded in October that the average daily two-way count was approximately 14 689 cars. The minister also indicated that VicRoads were investigating potential works to improve pedestrian safety in the southern section of the street and that the improvement was expected
