Timely signs


SIGNS to help motorists estimate how long it will take to reach the southern Mornington Peninsula are being installed along Point Nepean Road and Browns Road.

The signs by Mornington Peninsula Shire and VicRoads estimate travel times for the coastal and inland routes. 

Beacons will detect road users with Bluetooth-enabled devices to calculate actual travel times. Signs will then display the times of each route so drivers can choose their best option.

“[The signs] provide us with valuable data, such as traffic congestion levels and driver behaviour, which helps us strategically plan for future transport solutions on the southern peninsula,” the mayor Cr David Gill said. 

The signs will also be on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway at the southbound service centre, Baxter, informing drivers of travel times to Dromana and Rosebud; on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway, Arthurs Seat Road, offering information on travel times along the two route options to the southern peninsula; and, on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway extension, Rosebud, offering a second travel time update along the two routes.
